I tried this even though I didn't have cauliflower. I thought the cinnamon and nutmeg were a bit overpowering on the sweet potatoes but maybe that's because I didn't cook them with the cauliflower rice. The chicken was tasty. I made some quinoa in chicken broth and added the sweet potatoes into that then served the chicken over it. I would try it again when I have cauliflower.
It was good and very healthy thank you. However I found the chicken to be bland and the next time I'll add garlic to the chicken or a caper sauce. I chopped up 2 cups sweet potatoes in a chucky hash and cooked with sweet onion until golden. I had more cauliflower to cook so I probably doubled the recommendation. Due to that I had to compensate to overcome the cauliflower bitterness. So I plump up dried cranberries in warm water chopped fine and added. Also toasted 1/4 cup sliced almonds to add. Lastly I lightly drizzled about 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup. I'm glad my husband liked it very much. (and he hates cauliflower)
After reading some of the less than ideal reviews I decided to simply make a meal with the basic items cooked separately. Slice whole cauliflower thin coat w/olive oil salt and roast in shallow pan. Pan fry chicken but add some garlic and cook sweet potatoes as noted but add a little salt and/or butter. Why ruin good ingredients? Plus forget ricing the darn cauliflower- it s so good carmelized and roasted.
I used miso tamari in the cauliflower/sweet potato mix to enrich and give depth. I also used pickled lemon which is far more interesting in the chicken. I finely cut the lemon and sauteed and then added some of the pickled juice.
I have never made a recipe on this website I have disliked until this one. I really only wanted the cauliflower/sweet potato portion of this recipe. I made that part of the recipe as suggested and it was so bland. The only way I could salvage this meal was to add 2 tbsps raw sugar a tbsp of coriander 1/2 cup finely ground onion flavored almonds and a tbsp paprika. It gave it a savory flavor when paired with the cinnamon and nutmeg.
