2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts, halved horizontally to make 4
1/2 c. fresh Parmesan, finely grated
Salt and fresh cracked black pepper
2 large cloves garlic, grated
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp Italian seasoning
4 tbsp unsalted butter, divided
1 head cauliflower, riced
1/2 c. white onion, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp vegetable stock
Juice of one lemon (zest, if desired)
Red chilli pepper flakes, optional
1/4 c. fresh parsley, chopped


Step 1: Combine the Parmesan cheese, grated garlic, paprika, and Italian seasoning in a shallow bowl. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper, then coat in the Parmesan mixture. Shake the excess off before setting it aside.

Step 2: Melt 2 tbsp butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken cutlets to the skillet once the butter has melted and cook each side for about 3 to 4 minutes until golden and cooked through. Note that the cooking time varies depending on the thickness of the cutlets. Transfer to a plate when done and set aside.

Step 3: Melt another 2 tbsp butter in the now-empty pan. Add the garlic and onion and saute for about a minute until aromatic. Then, add the riced cauliflower, stir, and cook for a minute more.

Step 4: Add 2 tbsp vegetable stock followed by half of the parsley and if using, lemon zest. Stir well and cook for another minute until the juices have reduced. Add in the lemon juice and a couple of sprinkles of the remaining Parmesan cheese if desired.

Step 5: Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed before stirring in the rest of the parsley. Add the chicken back to the pan over the cauliflower rice and quickly reheat.

Step 6: Before serving, garnish with fresh cracked black pepper, red chilli pepper flakes, and extra Parmesan.


To make sure the Parmesan doesn’t stick, use a non-stick pan to make this dish.
