Keto Chicken Fried Rice with Cauliflower Low Carb Recipe

If you’re missing fried rice, you’re in the right place. Today I will share my keto chicken fried rice recipe, which is perfect for lunch or dinner.

The great thing about keto cauliflower fried rice with chicken is that it offers a delicious, satisfying meal packed with protein and essential nutrients, all while being low in carbs, making it a perfect fit for those following a ketogenic diet.

Chicken breast is a source of protein and can be used in many keto chicken dishes. In addition, there is no carbohydrate in chicken which makes it a perfect choice for this dish.

Rice contains a lot of carbohydrates, so to make the low-carb fried rice, I will use cauliflower instead.
