Jo's Crock Pot Chicken and Vegetables and Cast Iron Skillet Fried Cauliflower Rice

My friend Jo is up from Florida and decided to fix us a crock pot full of vegetables and chicken with fried cauliflower rice.  Very low carb, low fat, low glycemic index, low in calories and gluten free.  Very easy and with most of my recipe's you can vary the vegetables to suit yourself.  Cauliflower rice can be a meal unto itself.  Just  use it  like rice.  Today,  we decided to have the crock pot chicken and vegetables with it.  This was absolutely delicious.  Jo did a wonderful job.  Love having her visit.
