print recipe


  • 1½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed and seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano or diced Italian tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into florets or 1 (16 ounce) bag fresh or frozen florets
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

cooking methods

  • Bake
  • Microwave


Serve tonight: Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with Avocado Oil; top with seasoned chicken and Onion Onion™ Seasoning. Sprinkle chicken with half the mozzarella cheese.

Place the cauliflower in a large bowl; cover and microwave on HIGH 3-4 minutes, until softened but not cooked through. Combine cornstarch with tomatoes and add to cauliflower; stir in Rustic Herb Seasoning. Spoon over cheese in pan. Bake 30 minutes or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165°. Top with remaining cheese; bake an additional 5 minutes. Place under broiler to toast the cheese, if desired. Makes 6 servings.

This version creates a light broth - serve in bowls.

Freeze for later: Combine seasoned chicken and Onion Onion™ Seasoning in a gallon resealable freezer bag. Place cheese in a quart resealable freezer bag. Place tomatoes in a quart resealable freezer bag. Place all bags in a gallon resealable freezer bag. Seal well, label and freeze. Thaw completely. Prepare as directed above.

Serve with a garden salad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The kids ate cauliflower! I served the meal with a salad and garlic bread to make it more "bruschetta-like." The whole family really liked it, this is definitely a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Big Hit! This is a fabulous recipe! I've made it twice already this week- and shared the recipe 5 times. I tried it earlier this week for my husband and I and we loved it- I decided it was the perfect dish to take to our Family Reunion, so I bought more Cauliflower and made a big, double batch. It was all gone, with many requests for the recipe. My cousin said she didn't even like cauliflower, but she loved this. Great Low-Carb dish- it will for sure become a regular around here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FULL of flavor Everyone in my family went back for 2nds (even 3rds) of this! Except my daughter, who hates tomatoes, so that was expected. :) My husband mentioned several times how he normally doesn't like cauliflower and was shocked at how delicious it was with the seasoning and other flavors.
