Skinny Baked Chicken Recipe With Tomato Braised Cauliflower: A Winner Winner Healthy Chicken Dinner

Juicy baked chicken breast slices sit on a bed of cauliflower that's been braised in tomatoes and spices. Yum! This easy chicken recipe has all the flavor without all the fat and calories.

With chicken and vegetables, this skinny recipe is a complete meal, but you could add a salad for even more nutrition. Broccoli could be substituted for the cauliflower.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 3 green onions, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 garlic cloves, sliced thin
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
