Keto Chicken Fajita Rice Bowl Recipe

keto chicken fajita rice bowl for lunch

Chicken fajita rice bowls are something I like to make when I have leftover chicken. It’s easy to make up a batch of spanish cauliflower rice. Then top with chicken, sauteed bell pepper, and sour cream. Enjoy as a quick keto lunch or dinner - especially when you meal prep all the ingredients ahead of time.

Often, I will make the keto mexican rice ahead of time. Along with grilling chicken or using a rotissarie chicken, this recipe can come together quickly if you have all the ingredients pre-made.

Riced Cauliflower

The easiest route to take when making spanish cauliflower rice is to buy cauliflower rice at the store. You can find it in the produce section or the frozen foods section of the grocery store.

It’s more cost effective to make your own cauliflower rice from a whole head of cauliflower. Take a whole cauliflower and cut off the stem and cut into large chunks. Use a cheese grater or food processer to chop into rice pieces.

Chicken Options

Any type of chicken works well for this recipe. You can prepare it with your favorite method - grilled, shredded, baked. Or get a rotissarie chicken from the grocery store.

I have also used leftover keto chicken schnitzel for these low carb fajita bowls. It’s a way to have crispy chicken tenders on your rice bowl. To reheat the chicken schnitzel, bake it in the oven for 7-8 minutes or use an air fryer at 400 degrees for 5 minutes to reheat. This will help crisp up the chicken. crispy chicken slices on fajita low carb bowl

Optional Toppings

Other toppings that you can add to your low carb chicken fajita rice bowl are:

  • sauteed onion
  • avocado
  • guacamole
  • cheese
  • slice radish
  • salsa
