Buttery Tomato-Caper Chicken and Cauliflower “Rice” Recipe #CookwithSpreads

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Unilever.
tomato-caper chicken recipe
After being so very very good for the first few months of the year, sloth and snacking over the past few have cause me to “rediscover” a few pounds.  Thus, I’m currently working on getting them back off  and hopefully a few more along with them.  This Tomato-Caper Chicken and Cauliflower “Rice” Packets recipe is low calorie, low carb, gluten-free, and thanks to I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter also trans and hydrogenated fat free.

Using I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter rather than actual dairy butter, not only significantly reduces the amount of saturated fat in recipes, but it is lower in calories and overall fat as well.  As an added bonus, the spread contains 10x as much Omega 3 fats (the heart healthy ones) as dairy butter.

Since I am not fond of a lot of clean-up, and the dog days of summer are quickly approaching, I thought a recipe for the grill would be nice.  I didn’t feel like the standard grill fare today though, and this chicken and cauliflower dish in a tangy flavorful brothy sauce made for a very satisfying lunch (the back up pouch I made was just dinner…lol).  I have only just recently started ricing cauliflower, to occasionally use in place of starch in meals & am surprised at how much I like it, well when teamed with a tasty sauce anyway.  This stew-like chicken and vegetable recipe cooked in foil packets is going to be making several appearances at my dinner table this summer.  That is for certain.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup cauliflower (riced)*
  • 4 oz. sliced chicken breast (substitute fish or shrimp if you prefer)
  • ½ cup chopped tomato
  • ½ tsp minced garlic (about ½ a clove)
  • 1 tbs. caper berries
  • 3-4 sprigs of fresh lemon thyme (standard thyme or a few chopped fresh basil leaves would be a good stand-in)
  • 1 tbs. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter
  • 1 wedge of lemon
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill (or oven – 400 degrees).
  2. Fold sides of foil to hold in juices. (see video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y14auMQXZRM)
  3. Spread cauliflower in bottom of foil packet and top with chicken.
  4. Mix the tomato & garlic together, then spread over the chicken.
  5. Top with capers, herbs and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.
  6. Squeeze the wedge of lemon over the packet contents, then place on top.
  7. Wrap the packet up to seal in juices, but don’t wrap tight to food, leave a little room for steam inside.
  8. Place on grill (and reduce heat to medium) or put on baking sheet and bake in oven. The packets will take about 20-25 minutes to fully cook.
  9. While dish could be eaten out of the packet, a shallow bowl is ideal.
Notes
*To rice the cauliflower, take the whole head and grate the florets against a microplane or standard kitchen grater. (If making a large batch, cut off florets and pulse in food processor)
