Today’s Menu: Pan-Roasted Chicken with Cauliflower w/ Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary

 

Roasted Chicken and Cauliflower 005

 

Had a 9:00 am Doctor appointment, checking up on sugar, cholesterol, and such. Get the results end of the week, hopeful everything okay! From there to Kroger to pick a few items needed for dinner tonight. Warmer again today, mid 40’s with 50 or 60 coming the next couple of days. But then a huge cold front coming in after that. Enjoy it while it’s here I guess. For dinner a couple of new ones tonight, Pan-Roasted Chicken with Cauliflower w/ Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary.

 

 

 

Came across the Pan-Roasted Chicken with Cauliflower in Mom’s issue of Rachael Ray Every Day Magazine and the recipe looked and sounded too good to pass up! I ve left the full recipes and web links to all the recipes at the end of the post.

 

 

Roasted Chicken and Cauliflower 004

For the Chicken recipe called for 1 whole chicken (3 1/2 lbs.), quartered. But I was just making it for myself so instead I used Miller’s Amish Skinless Chicken Breasts w/ Rib Meat. It came with 2 nice size breasts and they were skinless so that will save on calories. To prepare the Pan-Roasted Chicken with Cauliflower I needed 2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 lemon, thinly sliced, 3 rosemary sprigs, 4 cloves garlic, halved, 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets, and 3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley.
To Prepare it start by preheating the oven to 450 degrees . In a cast iron skillet, heat 1 tbsp. EVOO over medium-high. Season the chicken with sea salt and pepper and cook until golden-brown, about 7-8 minutes. Turn chicken, scatter with the lemon slices, rosemary sprigs and garlic, and roast until cooked through, about 25 minutes.

 
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the remaining 1 tbsp. EVOO over medium-high. Cook the cauliflower, stirring occasionally, until browned in spots, about 5 minutes. Add 3/4 cup water, partially cover and cook until just tender, 10 minutes. Season.
Transfer the cauliflower to a platter and add the chicken and lemon slices. Discard the rosemary. Mash the garlic into the pan juices. Top the chicken with the pan sauce and sprinkle with parsley. I also sprinkled fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese on the Cauliflower when it was done. And what a dish! The Chicken and Cauliflower go fantastic together. The Chicken came out moist and tender and the Cauliflower was very tender and with added Parm Cheese was spot on!

 

 
I also made some Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary. Love those potatoes and love this recipe also! A real simple one to prepare. You’ll need 6 to 8 small red potatoes, quartered into 1/2-inch pieces, 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary leaves, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper. To prepare it preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Then combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to coat potatoes. Transfer potatoes to a large baking sheet or shallow roasting pan. Roast 25 to 30 minutes, until tender and golden. Done, and we have Potatoes! Delicious comfort food dinner tonight! For dessert later a Helthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
