Chicken with Caramelized Cauliflower

Slow-cooking cauliflower brings out its natural sweetness. If you like, dress it up with fresh herbs while the chicken cutlets take a quick dip in the pan.


Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 red onion , thinly sliced
  • 1 large head cauliflower , cut into small florets
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt , divided
  • 4 chicken breast cutlets , (about 700 g)
  • 2 tsp paprika , preferably smoked
  • 2 tsp dried oregano leaves
  • handful chopped parsley , for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • Heat a large frying pan over medium. Add oil. When hot, add onion and cauliflower. Sprinkle sugar and 1 tsp (5 mL) salt overtop. Stir occasionally until tender, golden and caramelized, 25-30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, sprinkle chicken with dried seasonings and 1⁄2 tsp (2 mL) salt.
  • When cauliflower and onion are done, remove to plates and keep warm.
  • Add chicken to pan – cooking in 2 batches, if necessary, to avoid crowding. Cook until lightly golden and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
  • Sprinkle chopped parsley over the cauliflower, if you wish, and serve alongside cooked chicken.
