Looking for an easy, fresh lunch or dinner? Try these gluten free and paleo friendly Greek Chicken Cauliflower Rice Bowls! So tasty and simple to make! This post is sponsored by ShopRite but all opinions are my own. #ShopRite #WholesomePantry
These Greek Chicken Cauliflower bowls are seriously my new favorite lunch/dinner. You know when you make something and it’s just so simple and delicious you wonder ‘Why the heck didn’t I try this sooner?’ Yea. That’s how I feel about these! They come together in about 20 minutes, are SO full of flavor, and just downright yummy!
Over the weekend I had the pleasure of visiting at a new ShopRite in town to learn all about their products, meet with their dietitian on staff + tour the store. As you all already know, I only work with brands that I truly love – and I’ve always been a fan of ShopRite. As with most things, I was drawn in by their prices, (you know I’m all about eating healthy on a budget!) but after learning more about the brand and what they do for their customers, I love them even more!
Upon arriving at ShopRite I was greeted by their dietitian, Kristen who I was so impressed with. Did you guys know they have a dietitian on staff in almost every store? And that it’s FREE to take advantage of their services?! I had no idea. For those of you who don’t know, seeing a dietitian can be expensive. Sometimes it isn’t covered by your insurance, and can get very pricey. Having this free resource is a seriously incredible thing that ShopRite is offering. Kristen and I chatted about what her job entails, how she helps the community + then we set off on a tour. We started in the produce department.. which seriously blew my mind!! LOOK at these greens!Something I was so intrigued by is that when it comes to their greens, ShopRite opts to only carry organic at the price of conventional. (AKA you get organic greens at a super low price!) At first I was confused… Why would a company be willing to take that loss in profit? Organic veggies aren’t cheap, and many places sell them at an even higher markup because they know people are willing to pay for it. Their answer: ‘Because we thought it was the right thing to do.’ How’s that for good business?! I loved hearing that. In addition to gorgeous, organic greens – they also sell SO many pre-made/cut/prepared veggies! Checkout this spread! They’ve got zoodles, broccoli, zucchini.. you name it, they prep it for you! I was immediately drawn in by the cauliflower rice.Now, don’t get me wrong. I know you can put your cauliflower in a food processor and do it yourself… but have you ever done that? It’s makes a giant mess and takes a while to clean up. When you need convenience – already riced cauliflower is the way to go! While I was wandering through the store there were a few other items that caught my eye, and I found a lot of inspiration for yummy recipes!
These already sliced+ cleaned chicken cutlets are a game changer!! I’m super picky about how I eat chicken, and it has to have all of the yucky stuff really cleaned off. Finding these made me so excited. It just cuts out the work of preparing your chicken . These were in their Value Added section. They have all kinds of products like pre-marinated meats, kebabs, chicken cutlets..lots of yummy things!
After seeing all of the fresh produce, adding the riced cauliflower to my cart + snagging those precut chicken cutlets, I knew I wanted to make something Greek flavored. When I came home and started cooking, I knew I wanted to keep it simple, so throwing it all in one bowl seemed like the best way to do that!

Don’t ya just want a bite?! I loved that I was able to get all of these ingredients all in one place, at an affordable price. ShopRite‘s Wholesome Pantry line is seriously awesome. From fresh produce, to pantry staples – they offer a huge variety of things, all of which are organic and free from over 110 ingredients that they’ve banned! (You can view them all here).
Overall – I was so impressed by my shopping experience. While I’ve been shopping at ShopRite for years, I had no idea that they were family owned or did as much as they do for the community. Learning even more about their Wholesome Pantry line (which I always had in my cabinets, simply because I check the labels and loved the clean ingredients!) was so eye opening. Everything I learned just further proved how committed they are to serving the community + making healthy options affordable + easy!
