  3. Heat ½ tablespoon of olive oil and ½ tablespoon of sesame oil in a large 12-inch fairly deep non-stick skillet or wok over medium-high heat.

  4. Add in chicken and cook, tossing occasionally, for about 6 minutes until cooked through. Transfer to a plate.

  6. Add in cauliflower rice and saute for 3 minutes. Add in peas and carrots and saute for about 3 minutes until heated through.

  7. Push mixture to the edges of the pan. Add last ½ tablespoon of sesame oil to center, then add eggs and scramble and cook just until set.

  8. Return chicken to pan. Pour soy sauce over everything then toss and cook for 1 minute longer.

  9. Serve warm with green onions, peanuts, and Sriracha.
