Wash produce before use

1

Cook the cauliflower “rice”

  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] for garnish.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the cauliflower “rice,” season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, until the cauliflower starts to soften, 3 to 5 minutes [4 to 6 min]. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to a large heatproof bowl, stir in all but 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] of the parsley, and cover to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.
While the cauliflower “rice” cooks, start the carrot salad.

2

Make the warm carrot salad

  • Scrub or peel the carrots and trim the ends; cut the carrots in half lengthwise.
  • Peel and thinly slice enough onion to measure 1½ cups [3 cups].
  • In a small bowl, cover the raisins with hot tap water and soak until plumped, 4 to 5 minutes, then drain.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 teaspoons [4 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the carrots and cook, turning once, until lightly browned and starting to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the onion and 1 to 2 teaspoons more oil if the pan is dry, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is starting to caramelize, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the honey-ginger glaze and raisins, toss to coat, and cook until the carrots and onion are tender and the raisins are heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to another large heatproof bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the carrots and onion cook, prepare the chicken.

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Coarsely chop the almonds for garnish.
  • Cut a small corner from the chicken packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Toss the chicken with the Moroccan spice blend and season with salt and pepper.
In the same pan used for the cauliflower “rice,” warm 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, stirring once or twice, until lightly browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the carrot salad and toss to coat.

Serve

Transfer the cauliflower “rice” to individual plates and top with the chicken and warm carrot salad. Garnish with the almonds and remaining parsley and serve.
