Calypso is also a style of music from the Caribbean blending French and African influences. What does that have to do with your dinner? Well, the enchanting flavors of this pineapple and red pepper salsa, and the uncanny appeal of the citrusy roasted cauliflower will definitely captivate your attention and make your taste buds want to dance. Plain old chicken is ancient history, bring some funk to your dinner table.
Remove leaves from cauliflower head, core, and cut florets into ½" pieces. Place cauliflower on baking sheet and toss with 1 ½ Tbsp. olive oil and ½ tsp. salt. Spread into a single layer and roast 22-25 minutes, or until edges begin to char. Remove from oven and set aside.

While cauliflower roasts, rinse pineapple under warm water if still frozen. Cut pineapple into ¼" dice. Drain roasted red peppers and cut into ¼" dice. Trim and thinly slice green onion on an angle. Mince cilantro (no need to stem). Zest lime, halve, and juice. Rinse chicken breasts, pat dry, and season both sides with ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.
Cook the Chicken
Place a medium pan over medium heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan and cook 5-8 minutes per side, or until chicken is golden brown and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees. Remove to a plate and let rest 5 minutes. Loosely tent with foil to keep warm until plating.
