Sweet BBQ Chicken Brat With Rice Recipe

One of our favorite meals just lost a few pounds! This Sweet BBQ Chicken Brat with Rice  Recipe is amazing! Seriously, we use to use pork to create the sweet bbq and rice meal. NOTE the substitute to cut carbs even more at the bottom of this blog post.  In today’s post I share my thoughts on the chicken brats I found at Aldi and are popping up everywhere.  You won’t believe it they are chicken.

You are gonna love this easy to create a recipe using my sweet BBQ sauce. I have to note the image above is not mine – it is from Canva .com


This recipe was inspired by Chicken Brats!

Shhh…. make it even more healthy by using a riced cauliflower instead of rice.  You can find cauliflower rice in the freezer department at most stores.  If you can’t find it riced it is super easy to mix up a batch from frozen cauliflower or fresh.  Check out my easy recipe for Cauliflower Rice on my website.

  3. Due to sensitivities and allergies, I make almost all our sauces from scratch. But I think my family loves my chocolate sauce best. 🙂

  5. This would be awesome to have, my sister and I can every summer “Ole School” this would make things so much easier. We make all of our own tomato sauce when ever we have spaghetti.
