Food: Dinner Tonight – Lemon butter Chicken and Mashed Cauliflower

I realized last night, while up with eyes wide-open planning the week, that I wanted to make a chicken dish for dinner tonight. Something different and exciting and this recipe is just perfect, because everyone in my family loves cauliflower – let’s just hope they love mashed cauliflower – oh and the chicken too.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 chicken cutlets, or 2 boneless chicken breasts, sliced in half horizontally
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour (can use GF flour too)
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 12 fresh sage leaves
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tablespoons capers

MASHED CAULIFLOWER

  • 1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2-3 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter {more}

On another note – if you are wondering what to watch on television tonight since you are probably all caught up on the rest – here’s my suggestion – a start -studded 2002 film with Paul Newman, Tom Hanks, Jude Law, and Daniel Craig among so many others. I normally don’t care for Mafia type films, but this one was pretty interesting – I suppose I was more intrigued by the cast.
