2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

¼ teaspoon each: salt and pepper

2 tablespoons butter, melted

pounds grated or “riced” cauliflower (about 5½ cups)

¼ pound asparagus, chopped (about ½ cup)

½ cup chicken stock

Preheat oven to 350⁰F.

Place chicken in a casserole dish and season with salt and pepper. Pour melted butter on top of chicken, and roast until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165⁰F, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to rest.
