Instructions

1

Prep and roast the onion and oranges

Heat the oven to 425°F.
  • Peel the red onion and cut into ¼-inch-thick rounds.
  • Cut 1 whole orange (including peel) in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • Using your hands or a sharp knife, peel the remaining orange; cut the fruit in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons. Set aside for finishing the dish.
  • Strip the rosemary leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
On a sheet pan, toss the onion and unpeeled orange slices with the rosemary and 2 to 3 teaspoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Spread in an even layer and roast, stirring halfway through, until the onion and orange are caramelized, 18 to 20 minutes.
While the onion and orange roast, prepare the cauliflower.

Cook the cauliflower mash

  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the cauliflower “rice,” season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cauliflower starts to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Using a masher, fork, or the back of a spoon, mash to desired consistency. Cover partially to keep warm.
While the cauliflower cooks, prepare the chicken.

Prep and cook the chicken

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper .
In a medium frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken, skin side down, and cook until the skin is well browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Turn and cook until the meat is firm and cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
While the chicken cooks, finish the roasted onion and orange.
