This post actually contains two recipes in one post (though one is linked to and not actually listed). I made Lemon Rosemary Chicken and paired it with mashed cauliflower (sour cream and chive flavored even though it doesn’t actually use sour cream) for dinner the other night, and I thought they went perfectly together, so wanted to post both of them in one post. If I make these together again, I may flavor the mashed cauliflower with garlic and olive oil instead of the yogurt and chives just because I think it may make a better pair with this specific chicken recipe. BUT chicken and mashed cauliflower are a win when paired together regardless of the spices used!
First, the lemon rosemary chicken! I got the recipe for this from The Slow Roasted Italian, and you can find it here. The recipe is copyrighted, so I am not going to post the actual recipe on this post, but I will post a few pictures of mine!
Now for the mashed cauliflower!!! This one I came up with on my own – yes, it’s much simpler, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less flavorful and delicious! Hubby LOVED them, and I didn’t tell him it was cauliflower till after he ate them, and at first, he didn’t believe me. He thought it was just plain ol’ mashed potatoes, so I consider this dish a win since it is incredibly good for you, but tastes like the stuff that isn’t so good for you!
MASHED CAULIFLOWER WITH CHIVES
- 1 head cauliflower
- 1/3 cup homemade chicken broth
- 1/3 cup plain greed yogurt
- sea salt to taste
- pepper to taste
- fresh chives, chopped
1.) Chop the cauliflower into florets. Place in a large pot and fill the pot about halfway with water. Cover and place over medium high heat. Cook till the cauliflower is completely tender – about 10-15 minutes.
2.) Drain the cauliflower and transfer to a food processor. Add the chicken broth, sour cream, sea salt and pepper, and mix on high until smooth.
3.) Top with chopped chives and serve!
YUMMMMMM!!! You can also play around with the recipe using different spices, etc. Enjoy!
