  • My family loved this. I used the same bread crumbs to make chicken fingers and baked them both in one pan for 15 minutes. Added Ranch dressing for dipping sauce for fingers. One stop dinner and for a total of 364 cal - 162 cal for cauliflower and 202 for 4 oz of chicken. Add cal for dressing. - 8/20/09

  • This was really good. I don't even like cauliflower, and I thought it was the best part of the meal. (I used shredded asiago instead of parmesan, because that's what I happened to have around, but I doubt it was very different.) - 1/22/09
