Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 20 min

Total Time: 30 min

Yield: 4 servings


2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts, halved horizontally to make 4

1/2 cup fresh Parmesan, finely grated

Salt and fresh cracked black pepper

2 large cloves garlic, grated

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

1 head cauliflower, riced

1/2 cup white onion, chopped

2 large cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons vegetable stock

Juice of one lemon

1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped


The Chicken

To make this parmesan chicken recipe: In a shallow plate, combine parmesan cheese, grated garlic, paprika, and Italian seasoning. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper; dredge in the parmesan mixture; shake off excess and set aside.

In a large non-stick skillet melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat. Cook chicken cutlets until golden on each side and cooked through – about 3-4 minutes for each side, depending on the thickness of your chicken cutlets. Transfer to a plate.

The cauliflower couscous

In the same pan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Fry the garlic and onion for 1 minute until fragrant — be careful not to burn.

Add the cauliflower couscous to the skillet and stir to mix everything together well and coat in melted butter. Cook, stirring regularly for 1 minute.

Stir in the 2 tablespoons vegetable stock, about half the parsley, and lemon zest (if using). Cook the cauliflower couscous for one minute to reduce juices then add the lemon juice and a few sprinkles of leftover parmesan cheese, if you like.

Adjust seasoning as needed. Stir in the remaining parsley. Return chicken breasts over cauliflower couscous and reheat quickly. Serve your parmesan chicken with fresh cracked black pepper and more parmesan. Enjoy!
