- 1 large green bell pepper, finely chopped
- 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
- 1 ton extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp. Greek seasoning
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- Remove the cauliflower rice from the freezer and let it thaw on the counter while the chicken is cooking.
- Trim the chicken and cut each piece lengthwise into 2-3 strips, depending on the size of the chicken breasts. Put the chicken slices in the preparation bowl.
- Grate the lemon peel (using A Lemon Zester is easier). Then cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice.
- Whisk the zest and juice together with Greek seasoningolive oil and chicken brothGreek oreganoand black pepper to make a cooking sauce. Pour the cooking sauce mixture over the chicken in the prepared saucepan.
- Set the Instant Pot to manual, high pressure, for 8 minutes. Then do it normally for 10 minutes before releasing the rest of the pressure.
- When all pressure is released, use a perforated spoon to bring the chicken out onto a cutting board, leaving the flavorful sauce in the Instant Pot. (If there appears to be a lot of liquid in the Instant Pot, cook on SAUTE/HIGH HEAT for a few minutes to reduce the liquid.) Cut the chicken apart with two forks, then place in the Instant Pot, stirring gently until the chicken is coated with the liquid. Keep chicken warm on the low setting while preparing the other ingredients.
- To make the Greek sauce, chop the cucumber and tomato, Kalamata olives (or black olives), and red onions. Put those chopped ingredients in a bowl, stir in 1/4 cup of Italian dressing, then gently stir in the crumbled feta cheese.
- Chop the yellow onion and green pepper.
- If you are using fresh cauliflower, trim the cauliflower and discard the leaves. To use a food processor to chop cauliflower into “rice,” first chop the cauliflower (including the stems) into small pieces. Then process the cauliflower pieces with the steel blade in a food processor until finely chopped. (This recipe It has good pictures and instructions for doing just that.) You can also make “rice” by grating larger pieces of cauliflower with a large box grater.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, add green pepper and onion and sauté for 3 minutes or until vegetables are softened and beginning to turn brown.
- Add the Greek seasoning and cook for another minute. Then add half-thawed frozen cauliflower (or fresh cauliflower) and cook, stirring several times, until the cauliflower is heated through and some of the liquid has evaporated, about 3-4 minutes. (Taste the cauliflower to see if it’s hot and cooked; fresh cauliflower will take a little longer to cook.) Season the cauliflower rice with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
- To assemble the bowl, place a little hot cauliflower rice in the bottom of a serving bowl. Over the rice, place 1 tablespoon of the grated lemon chicken from the slow cooker, then top with 1 tablespoon of the Greek salsa mixture. Serve immediately.
- You can keep lemon-shredded chicken in the refrigerator for a day or two and reheat it in a skillet or in the microwave. For the cauliflower rice and Greek salsa mix, I’ll make that fresh every time you have the leftovers.
