Whip this dish up Sunday and eat it throughout the week or easily feed a family of 5. A whole lot of flavor plugged into a huge stack of nutrients. You can substitute the chicken for a batch of Sweet n’ Sour chicken to turn this dish into the Chinese takeout you can trust.
Ingredients: 2 Heads Cauliflower. 5 Slices of thick Bacon. 1 lb Chicken Breast. 3 Eggs. 5 Garlic Cloves. Large Hunk of Ginger. 5-8 Scallions, 6 large Carrots. Basil or Cilantro, Unpasteurized Soy Sauce. Coconut Oil/Butter.
I prepped all my ingredients first. Then I mixed them together and snapped a bunch of pictures. I started by chopping the cauliflower.
Then I added the cauliflower to a 12″ saute pan with a hunk of Kerry gold grass fed butter. I wait to add heat.
Slice the chicken in half the long way. Place a hand on top and glide the knife between the two hemispheres as evenly as possible. If you cut your hand, back up and try again.
After both chicken breasts are halved. Cover in plastic wrap and smash with a large flat object. I use the bottom of an old omelet pan. You could try a heavy boot or smashing it with your fist like a
Scrape the skin of the ginger off with a butter knife.
Grind it it some kinda grindergrader thing. Chop strings that come of into squares with a knife.
Peal strangeness off ends of green onions and stack in a line.
Chop the white. Peal the garlic.
Chop bacon. Heat wok or saute pan.
Turnt up the cauliflower. Medium to medium high heat. Make it sizzle.
Remove cooked bacon to side dish. Leave grease to cook chicken. Pan should be quite hot.
Make sure each piece is touching the pan.
Sizzle. Leave chicken to sit on same side until almost cooked through. Then flip. chicken should be somewhat browned on one side. This is that flavor we’ve been looking for. Cook other side 1-2 minutes until cooked through. Remove chicken to side dish, keep grease. Move that cauliflower around so it doesn’t burn. Brown without burn, soft without squishy. That’s what we’re aiming for. Add second chicken breast to pan with scallions and ginger. Saute. Once scallions soften and chickens almost cooked through. Add garlic. Remove to side dish and add coconut oil to pan to cook carrots. Carrots.Add 3-5 tbs soy sauce. Little for the chicken. Little for the cauliflower. Little more for the carrots. Little Salt and pepper. When cauliflower is soft and browned. Turn off heat.I added leftover garlic and green onion stems to carrots. Roll basil and chop into ribbons. Ready your three eggs. Cut the scallion greens to add with basil. Carrots are done when soften to level of preferred softness. Remove carrots to side dish. Scramble and add eggs. Scramble eggs. Add Basil and green onion greens. Mix in side dish. Return head to cauliflower. Mix it. Mix in with Cauliflower. So delicious and easy to reheat. Simply saute with a chunk of butter on medium heat until hot. Skip the microwave.

This was great, but could you just write out the recipe? It was hard to follow.
Actually I really want to find a way to use no words and illustrate it more clearly with just the pictures.
Hi Travis, it looks delicious, but how long did it take? I’m following you from Spain!! Your story is so inspiring. I started listening to Abraham a few months ago and it’s been amazing. Buen camino!
Thanks! Took about 30-40 minutes I believe. Pretty simple. Awesome! I want to go to Spain. Glad you enjoyed my story and found abe 🙂 Happy living to youu!
Hi Travis. I found this via Reddit. I wanted to comment there but your post has been archived. Anyway, I wanted to let you know I love the way you posted this recipe. I like the pictures showing how you did it step by step. I like the text too. I consider myself an experienced cook and I enjoy cooking but seeing the way other people prep and cook is interesting to me.Plus, you never know when you can learn something new by actually “seeing” how someone else may do things. This looks really good. I’m going to make this soon.
Thank you very much. I’m really happy you enjoyed the recipe. Thanks for the kind words. Very cool way of seeing the world. Let me know how you like it!
