Directions

The Chicken

1. 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.

2. 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 rice

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

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

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

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

Note: Make sure to use a non-stick pan otherwise the parmesan might stick.

Tips for the Garlic Butter Chicken with Parmesan Cauliflower Rice Recipe

This one-pan garlic butter parmesan chicken and cauliflower recipe is full of rich, buttery herb flavors with both chicken and cauliflower rice all cooked in one pan for quick, easy prep and final cleanup. This healthy chicken recipe for dinner is low in carbs, gluten-free, and Keto diet-friendly. Here are a few tips so you can make the most of this delicious chicken and cauliflower dinner recipe:

  • Make sure to use a good quality non-stick pan. Otherwise, the parmesan might end up sticking to the pan and not on the chicken. If this occurs, deglaze the pan with a little chicken broth before adding the cauliflower rice.
  • Cooking time will depend on the thickness of your chicken cutlets. If using whole chicken breasts, the chicken and cauliflower rice recipe will take about 10 to 15 minutes more.
  • Don’t skimp on spices and lemon, they really help to cut through the bland flavor of cauliflower and bring life to the whole dish.
  • You can enrich the sauce by adding some white wine when you deglaze the pan.

Can we use other veggies than cauliflower for this chicken recipe?

If you’re not a fan of cauliflower, replace it with green beans, broccoli, zucchini noodles, or even asparagus!
