How to Make Herbed Breaded Chicken with Mashed Cauliflower


  • 1Turn on the broiler to preheat while prepping the rest of the meal.
  • 2In a medium/large zip-top baggie, mix together the breading mixture ingredients until well blended. Set aside.
  • 3Drizzle the olive oil over the chicken breast and rub to coat well. Drop the oiled chicken breast into the baggie, zip the baggie closed and shake until the chicken is well coated. Place the breaded chicken in the broiler and cook for 10 minutes.
  • 4Clean the cauliflower and cut the head into florets. Place about 1/4 inch of water in the bottom of a heavy frying pan, large skillet or steamer and add the florets. Place on burner over medium heat and cover. Once the water is boiling, steam for 3 minutes for slightly crunchy, 8 minutes for soft.
  • 5Turn the chicken breast over to make sure it cooks evenly. Cook for another 8 - 10 minutes.
  • 6Test the chicken for internal temp to determine if it is done (should read 165 degrees F). If so, remove from the broiler and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • 7Check the cauliflower to see if it is done to your liking - if so, remove from heat and drain. Add the remaining ingredients for the mashed cauliflower and whip with a hand-mixer until smooth.
  • 8Plate the cauliflower, chicken and add the roasted tomatoes on the side. Yum!!
