Simple Healthy Weeknight Cook

Was trying to keep it healthy last night. And simple. And not have to go to the store. Grilled chicken breasts, roasted cauliflower and a salad. And some liquid lubricant of the brown variety to help it go down. 

Started off by firing up the Mini, flattened some chicken breasts and seasoned them down with some CanCooker All Purpose Seasoning that I got at the Plano Fest. I'm not sure what the CanCooker is, but I thought I'd give their seasoning a try.

While the Mini was warming up, I started prepping some cauliflower for a roasted cauliflower recipe. I've heard that cauliflower has all kinds of things and stuff that are good for you. I need all of that I can get.

I hate winter. I can't get a decent shot of things on the Egg at night. Maybe I should hate myself for not figuring out how to photo things better.

Served it up with the cauliflower and a salad. Healthy, huh?

The chicken turned out to be a bit too salty. Guess I was a little heavy handed with the seasoning. What surprised me, though, was that the cauliflower was the star of the show. I've never been a big fan of cauliflower, but this stuff was good. I even went back for seconds. And packed some for lunch today.

So, now that I've had good cauliflower, I'm more interested in it. Anybody have a good recipe for grilling it up?

  • I like cauliflower, green olives, and garbonzo beans tossed in EVO dusted with tsunami spin or trader joes everyday seasoning, 

    in the oven on a cookie sheet 350 flipping every ten until the cauliflower is roasted

    on the egg, in a cast iron frying pan, 375 on the dome flipping every ten, 

    usually done around 40 minutes, had one batch go fast the other day and was done at 25, so keep an eye on it.

    if there is any left works great as a cold left over

    Vary nice, Im a Cauliflower junkie and look for new ways to eat it. I have taken whole Cauliflower and cut them in half and seasoned them and cooked them on the egg indirect at 300 with a little smoke.

    Came out awesome.

    I think tonight I am going your route with some grilled chicken.

    Looks great (as usual) griff, I just need to make some that's so incredible my supertaster Miss B likes.  Then maybe I can get it on the menu regularly, because I love cauliflower.

    How many heads of cauliflower should I pick up with each handle of bourbon?  :)

    Hey Griffin, I'm gonna try the cauliflower tonight, looks delish! Quick dumb question for you though. Do you cover while in the oven or leave it uncovered?

  • Nice cook, like the pounded chicken. 

    For veggies, I use an asian twist, 1/3 cup of soy and rice vinegar, 1 Tbs minced ginger and honey and minced garlic, about 1 tsp sesame oil (to taste)

    Marinate your veggies in this, at least 2 hours, drain and then roast, indirect, uncovered. After 10 minutes, give it a quick stir. Works for cauliflower by itself, but it also likes company, any firm veggie will do.

    Good looking dinner. Cauliflower is such a neutral veggie. I can't figure out why VI won't let it touch his lips. I cook it al dente and dice it up and use it instead of rice under stir fry and in my asian lettuce wraps. But I think it would be even better roasted. Thanks for posting.

  • Looks good, I love Cauliflower! My fav way to eat is to steam it and the throw it in the processor with a little butter salt pepper and a tad of milk and blend it into a mashed potato consistency. GOOD EATS!
