1/2 c. fresh Parmesan, finely grated
2 large cloves of garlic, grated
1 tsp Italian seasoning

HOW TO MAKE 15-MINUTE GARLIC BUTTER CHICKEN WITH PARMESAN CAULIFLOWER RICE
Step 1: Place the Parmesan cheese, grated garlic, paprika, and Italian seasoning on a shallow plate. Mix well until combined. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then coat in the Parmesan mixture. Shake the excess off and set it aside.
Step 2: Melt 2 tbsp butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken cutlets to the skillet once the butter has melted and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes per side until golden and completely cooked. To a plate, transfer the chicken cutlets when done.
Step 3: Melt 2 tbsp butter in the now-empty pan. Add the garlic and onion and cook for about a minute until aromatic. Then, add the riced cauliflower and mix well. Continue to cook for another minute, stirring regularly.
Step 4: To the skillet, pour in 2 tbsp vegetable stock, about half the parsley, and lemon zest (optional). Stir well and cook for an additional minute to decrease the juices. Next, add the lemon juice and a couple of sprinkles of Parmesan cheese.
Step 5: As needed, adjust the seasonings. Add the rest of the parsley and stir. Add the chicken breasts on top of the cauliflower rice and quickly reheat.
Step 6:Take off the heat when done and serve the garlic butter chicken with Parmesan cauliflower rice right away. Sprinkle with fresh cracked black pepper, red chili pepper flakes, and extra Parmesan. Enjoy!
