A note about serious food allergies

There's no reason eating right means eating boring. For this meal, we're bringing you both cream and butter, two of the most decadent things around. And yet, it's calorie-conscious and carb-conscious! How do we do such magic? Never mind that, just enjoy the flavor of these fresh peppers and cream, paired with cauliflower doused in butter and lime. Leave boredom to the other calorie counters. Tip: If you're looking for the right texture for the sauce, dip a spoon in and see how well it sticks to the back. If it coats, you're good to go.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using mahi-mahi, pat dry and halve. Season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Follow same instructions as chicken in Step 3, cooking until mahi-mahi reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-5 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut cauliflower florets into 1” pieces. Stem poblano peppers, seed, and finely dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping. Halve lime. Juice one half and cut other half into wedges. Coarsely chop pepitas. Mince garlic. Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt.

  2. 2

    Roast the Cauliflower

    Place cauliflower florets on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and ¼ tsp. salt, if desired. Massage oil into cauliflower. Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until tender, 16-20 minutes. While cauliflower roasts, cook chicken.

  3. 3

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and generously coat with cooking spray. Add chicken breasts to hot pan and cook until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Remove chicken to a plate and tent with foil. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Make the Butter

    In a mixing bowl, combine butter and ¼ tsp. lime juice. Set aside.

  5. 5

    Make Sauce and Finish Dish

    Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat. Add garlic and poblano to hot pan and stir often until poblano is soft, 1-2 minutes. Add cream and a pinch of salt, if desired. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir constantly until slightly thickened, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner. Add roasted cauliflower and pepitas to mixing bowl with butter and stir to combine. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping chicken with sauce. Squeeze lime wedge over to taste. Bon appétit!
