When you’re short on time and still want to enjoy a gut healing meal, you can setup a nutrient dense feast in just 15 minutes. And this fast Paleo Chicken Fried Rice recipe is the perfect solution!

This delicious grain free fried rice meal is especially nourishing as it’s developed around bone broth, one of the pillars of the Auto Immune Protocol, packed with important minerals and amino acids (like calcium, magnesium, collagen, chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine) that are necessary to heal arthritis and leaky gut.

As you will see from the ingredient list, not only is bone broth used to season the Paleo Chicken Fried Rice and the sautéed veggies; bone marrow itself is the fat on which you’ll stir fry and flavor your chicken cauliflower-rice.

After boiling in your broth for several hours, marrow is really easy to scoop out from the bones and can become a great alley in your kitchen as it’s a powerhouse of linoleic acid (a potent cancer inhibitor), Omega-3 fatty acid and glycine, an amino used to make and repair other proteins in the body.

This rosemary chicken fried rice with sautéed veggies is just an example of HOW YOU SHOULD BUILD A BALANCED AUTO IMMUNE PALEO MEAL:

  • a cup of bone broth
  • lots of greens (thus the spinach!) and organic veggies (masked as cauliflower rice)
  • a source of healthy fats (just like bone marrow)
  • carbohydrates from starchy veggies (such as Kabocha squash)
  • a clean (read free range, grass fed or antibiotic free) source of protein (the chicken)

And the best news is that you can set up a meal that follow these paleo guidelines REAL FAST!

I created this recipe the day I made bone broth and, combining some of the ingredients used for the broth with some handy precut veggies I froze ahead of time, I was able to put together a satisfying AIP lunch in only 15 minutes!

FAST COOKING TIP: When I come home from the grocery, I like to peel, clean and dice my veggies, pack them in ziplock bags and store them in the freezer. It’s so much easier to grab a handful of frozen chopped onions than it is to dice them up on the cutting board each and every time! And the same is true for everything: from squash to cauliflower rice!

And when you find a good source of clean frozen veggies, just go for it, like I did with the spinach. Of course, fresh is better. But frozen veggies is much better than no veggies! 😉

    I miss chicken fried rice so bad! Maybe adding in some diced ham would make this even tastier?

    Hi Ambra, do you have a recipe for bone broth? Thank you!!

    • ambra September 19, 2019 1:14 pm

      Hey Monica, I usually fill up Instant Pot with water, add in 3 bones, a sweet potato, 3 or 4 carrots and 3 or 4 celery sticks and a pinch of salt and let it cook for 2 hours. Hope it helps!
