HOW TO MAKE 15-MINUTE GARLIC BUTTER CHICKEN WITH PARMESAN CAULIFLOWER RICE:
Step 1: Combine the parmesan cheese, grated garlic, paprika, and Italian seasoning in a shallow plate.
Step 2: With salt and pepper, season the entire chicken, then dredge in the parmesan mixture. Shaking off the excess.
Step 3: Melt 2 tbsp butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once melted, add the chicken cutlets and sear for about 3 4 minutes per side until golden and cooked through. Cooking time varies depending on the thickness of the cutlets. When done, transfer the cooked chicken cutlets to a plate.
Step 1: Melt 2 tbsp butter in the same pan. Saute the garlic and onion for about a minute until aromatic.
Step 2: Stir in the riced cauliflower and cook for a minute more.
Step 3: Add in 2 tbsp vegetable stock, half of the parsley, and if using, the lemon zest. Mix with the cauliflower rice and cook for another minute until the juices have reduced.
Step 4: Add the lemon juice and several sprinkles of leftover parmesan.
Step 5: Season according to taste.
Step 6: Stir in the rest of the parsley and add back the chicken breasts on top of the cauliflower rice. Quickly reheat.
Step 7: Once done, serve with fresh cracked black pepper, red chilli pepper flakes, and extra parmesan.
To ensure that the parmesan will not stick, make sure to use only a non-stick-pan.
