Poached Chicken with Smashed Cauliflower and Salsa
This dish is soooo goood!!! This is my take on a Jacque Pepin recipe I saw on a cook show about 7 years ago. I never write down recipes but I remembered the main ingredients. I've made the dish several times. I wanted to share this with my JAP, family. Happy Cooking! sw:)
chicken breast, skinless and boneless
kosher salt and pepper, sprinkle
head cauliflower, florets
rotel, drained ( i used fresh chopped vine ripe)
garlic cloves, minced
fresh cilantro, chopped
shallot , chopped
lime juice and zest
In a large pot, poach chicken in chicken broth, wine, salt and pepper for 15-20 minutes, until done.
Boil cauliflower florets until soft, This should take about 12-15 minutes. Drain well. Mash cauliflower. Add the remaining ingredients for the smashed caulifler , mix well.
Mix all salsa ingredients and chill for at least 15 minutes.
On a large plate add smashed cauliflower, chicken breasts and top with salsa. Enjoy!
