  • 3/4 cups crushed tomatoes (canned)

  • sea salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste

  • Add the tomatoes and water, stirring to combine.
  • Nestle the chicken into the sauce, along with the juices.
  • Increase the heat to bring the pot to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook, covered, for 25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cut the cauliflower into florets and place in a food processor.
  • Pulse until a rice-like consistency is reached.
  • Toss with grapeseed oil and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and spread into an even layer.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until cauliflower starts to brown. Remove and set aside.
  • Remove the chicken from the pot and cut into pieces.
  • Add the sunflower seed butter and vanilla to the pot and mix to combine.
  • Return the chicken to the pot and cover.
  • Heat through, about 5 minutes.
  • Serve over cauliflower rice and sprinkle with parsley and sunflower seeds.
