    Mama2boys's Note:

    I found this recipe on and tucked it away here for safe-keeping. It's originally called: Poulet au Choufleur. My family is from France, so I'm always on the lookout for a good French-inspired dish. NOTE: Marinate the chicken at least one hour or overnight.

      I do love a good cauli dish and I thought this was great. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts that I cut into strips but otherwise I left the recipe as is. I thought there was a bit too much liquid at the end so I might leave the top off the casserole dish for the last 10 minutes next time. It was missing that real melt-in-your-mouth roasted cauliflower 'feel' but it was almost there.

      This is not very strongly flavoured so don't be shy about adding more garlic or olives to it. I served it on a bed of brown rice with a side salad and it easily served 4.

      We're not big fans of cauliflower, so this recipe was impressive in that it made the stuff palatable. I'd make it again.
