- For the sauce:
- For the rub:
- Let’s start this off and get our sauce underway. Feel free to make this ahead and warm up later when you are ready to serve. Preheat a small pot on medium heat. Add the oil and then the shallots and ginger. Sweat until soft, but do not caramelize.
- Add the coconut milk, espresso, mango and salt and bring to a simmer. Reduce the sauce until it thickens up a little and then set aside.
- Mix up your spice rub in a small bowl. Next, drizzle a little oil on the chicken and then liberally coat with the spice rub. Cook the chicken in a preheated grill pan or a fry pan that has a lid. Brown the chicken nicely on both sides and cook with the lid on until the chicken is cooked all the way through.
- While your chicken is cooking go ahead and place the cauliflower in a bowl, drizzle a little oil and sprinkle with a lot of spice rub. Toss, transfer to a baking sheet and bake in a 400 ºF oven until the cauliflower is nicely roasted.
- Go ahead and serve the chicken and cauliflower together with a nice liberal drizzle of the sauce.
- Hope you enjoy!
