Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

Chicken

  1. To speed up the cooking process, cut the chicken breasts lengthwise into thin cutlets.
  2. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and ground black pepper. Feel free to add another seasoning of choice here.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter or oil to the skillet when hot. Carefully place the chicken breasts in the skillet and cook for about 4 minutes on each side. The chicken is ready to serve when it's no longer pink.
  4. Cauliflower mash

  5. Cut the cauliflower into florets. Discard the stem.
  6. Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the cauliflower and boil for a couple of minutes – just enough so the florets are tender but retain a slightly firm texture. Drain the cauliflower in a colander, and discard the water.
  7. Add the cauliflower to a food processor along with the Parmesan cheese and butter. Pulse until it reaches a smooth and creamy consistency. You can also use an immersion blender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Tip

To make a quick and delicious sauce, add some heavy cream and more seasoning to the skillet when the chicken is almost cooked.
