KETO CHICKEN AND ROASTED CAULIFLOWER

Recipe by: Jenn Jonkman of Hale Holistics

ABOUT THIS RECIPE

Baked chicken thighs paired with roasted cauliflower are a family favourite in my house - my son will patiently sit at the dinner table for this meal. And the smell of browned butter and savoury herbs is so comforting!

It's also a great budget meal. Chicken thighs frequently go on sale, and after trying this meal, you'll see that taste isn't always related to price.
