Honey Chipotle Chicken Marinade 

This marinade has it all! Marinate the chicken in olive oil, lime juice, salt, chili powder, garlic powder, black pepper, coriander, oregano, chipotle powder and keto honey substitute. Our favorite brand is the Nature Hallow Honey Substitute. This ingredient is highly recommended for this dish. The keto honey will give the chicken a beautiful caramelized finished. We love using keto honey for various marinades and recipes such as our Keto Sweet and Sour Pork and Keto Baked Pepperoni Chips with Keto Honey Mustard.

How to Make Cauliflower Rice Taste Good 

We’ve been making keto cauliflower rice for over 5 years! In the beginning, we hated it. But after testing various recipes and cooking methods, we think we’ve narrowed down the tastiest way to make it. 

  1. Buy Frozen Cauliflower Rice. Yes, frozen is best! We prefer this over the fresh cauliflower rice. In our experience the “fresh” cauliflower rice at the grocery store was always close to going bad. You can of course make your own cauliflower rice, but this makes the meal much more labour intensive. 
  2. Remove as Much Moisture As Possible. Cauliflower holds a lot of water. To get the best texture for your cauliflower rice, we recommend steaming the frozen cauliflower in the microwave. Allow the cauliflower to cool and squeeze out as much moisture as possible with a kitchen towel. 
  3. Seasoning, Seasoning and More Seasoning! Cauliflower rice isn’t the best on it’s own. It’s kind of bland! But this makes it a great base to take on whatever seasoning you prefer. In this dish we use A LOT of fresh cilantro and lime juice to flavour or cauliflower rice. If cilantro isn’t your thing, you can try our Keto Coconut Cauliflower Rice that’s featured in our Keto Cilantro Lime bowl.

How to Serve Keto Honey Chipotle Chicken 

This recipe is a complete keto meal! The Keto Honey Chipotle Chicken is best served with fresh avocado and our Keto Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice. If you’re looking for something different, you can serve the chipotle chicken with whatever low carb sides that you like! When I doubt, we like to make an easy tomato cucumber salad dressed with olive oil, lime juice and a bit of salt.
