This Chipotle Roasted Chicken and Cauliflower is an easy to make one dish meal! With just 5 ingredients, this low-carb and gluten-free meal is perfect for busy weeknights.
I received an All-Clad d5 Stainless-Steel All-In-One Pan as a participant in the All-Clad d5 Cookware Blogger Challenge. All opinions are my own.
If you’ve followed me long at all, you know that short ingredient lists are not my forte. I know that everyone loves easy recipes, and I often start with the best intentions to keep things simple.
Then I hit the kitchen and I start adding things. Before you know it my entire spice rack is on the counter, and my 5-ingredient dish has turned into 15-ingredients.
I’m working on this and today; I have proof. I’ve made you not just a recipe, but an entire dinner with just five ingredients.
I can’t take all the credit.
I did it because All-Clad invited me to participate in the All-Clad d5 Cookware Blogger Challenge and create a dish for Memorial Day with just five ingredients.
I knew it would be a great way to push myself.
And, I was motivated by a pan.
As part of the challenge, they sent me d5 Stainless-Steel All-In-One-Pan. I’ve always been an All-Clad fan and had been eying this pan at Williams-Sonoma for a while.
(Is it just me, or could you live in a Williams-Sonoma store?)
The All-Clad d5 stainless-steel cookware heats slowly and evenly, which yields perfectly browned proteins, from the center to the edges. I love that it has plenty of room to cook an entire meal for our family of five! With the addition of the lid, it is also perfect for simmering and braising.
Its magnetic stainless-steel exterior has such a gleaming polished finished that I was almost hesitant to use it, but I’m thrilled to report that it cleaned up beautifully. (And can I get a heck yeah for having only one pan to clean up after dinner?!)
And, oh, was this Chipotle Roasted Chicken & Cauliflower so good!
The chipotle butter seasons it perfectly, and the extra touch of lime at the end adds just the right bite.

That sounds delicious. Cauliflower is one of my favorite veggies and I can't wait to try this 🙂
Thanks! Let me know how it goes if you decide to give it a try.
I would love to cook my squash and onions in this pan. My pans are small and I hate using multiple pans for one dish.
Ohh, that sounds so good! My mom used to make squash and onions.
Oh my goodness, this looks incredible! Can you just come over here and cook for me?? I'll provide dessert and wine! LOL!
🙂 I'll always cook for wine and dessert!
This looks amazing!!! I'd love to make this with just the cauliflower even!
I LOVE roasted cauliflower. Whenever I buy cauliflower, there are so many things I love to make with it, and roasting it is definitely at the top of the list!
I am a big fan of grilled or roasted cauliflower. I think I need to try this.
My go to recipe is beef stroganoff but I have an old recipe for chicken; cream; pecans; onions; vermouth, etc that I would try first. This chicken cauliflower recipe would be a better choice for our current diet. Looks delicious.
Oh my this looks amazing. I bet it tasted just as good as it looked. I'll be over fro dinner.
I would like to use this to make Greek chicken pasta.
The first thing I would use it for is home fries. They are a great alternative to chips or french fries, and the kids love them.
Get this in my mouth now! Do you need any taste tetsers? lol.
My husband and I love our All Clad pans. This one would be a great addition.
I'm printing this for later! My picky eaters just discovered they hate cauliflower...but, that's OK. More for ME!! 😉
What a beauitul pan. I think I could find many uses for that in my newly remodeled kitchen.
I definitely want to try roasted cauliflower soon. Something different. Maybe my daughter will like it that way.
It is really good! I used to not think I liked cauliflower much but now I'm obsessed. Today I'm making mashed cauliflower!

I love 5 ingredient meals but it's rare I'm able to accomplish using that few ingredients, lol! All Clad pots and pans are so great. Awesome giveaway!
I am such a fan of quick and easy dinners. I'm going to try this recipe, but I'm now thinking I need that pan too. 🙂
I love LOVE roasted cauliflower! I am going to have to try this version soon! It looks absolutely amazing!
This is such a gorgeous Pan!! I love one pot dinners and the first thing I'd make in this fabulous Pan is your recipe for Chipotle Roasted Chicken & Cauliflower!! Next, I might make Pork Chops with Caramelized Apricots and Sage. Thanks for this awesome giveaway:)
I'd use this to try out the braised Brussels sprouts with bacon recipe I've been eyeing.
Ok might just be me but I've never been in a Williams Sonoma store. No idea what it is?
This looks great though, I could easily veganize this with Gardein Chickn!
This dish looks amazing! I'm not entirely a big fan of cauliflower but I do love chicken and chipotle roasted chicken sounds absolutely delicious! I would love to try this.
This looks so delicious, but I'm no longer able to eat cauliflower - what would be a good substitute? My first thought was broccoli, but not sure that would really have the right flavor.
I think broccoli would be amazing!
This looks like a perfect meal for dinner for the family. I love the golden color you were able to achieve on the cauliflower and the chicken. Delish! I'd certainly want to try this recipe.
I'd like to use this pan to make chicken parmesan
I would use this pan for paella, dirty rice, and jambalaya.
Braised short ribs would be so good right about now. I kind of want to make some stuffed peppers with them. 🙂
My pans all need to be replaced. I love the look of this pan.
This looks pretty yummy! I am glad to know you like the pan... I have eyed it for some time as well. Can't wait to try both!
I'd love to win this pan. Being able to do everything in one pan, included browning in the oven, would a blessing. I'd make your Mexican quinoa dish in it.
Yes to camping out at Williams and Sonoma - Heck Yeah to one pan AND to a delicious sounding but simple dinner! I would be making this recipe or sweet potato hash in this pan. I love the idea of ONE pan meals!
I've got cauliflower in the fridge just waiting to happen!
I make one pot dishes all the time, and these are some of my favorite ingredients! thanks for sharing!
This looks so good! I would love to do tequila lime shrimp!
Love making one pan meals and changing all pot to stainless thanks for the recipes
I would love to cook some salmon and veggies.
I would sautee some veggies and shrimp and make a thai peanut sauce.
Yum! Love Thai Peanut Sauce!
Wendy, you're not alone in your love of Williams-Sonoma and I don't even have a store nearby. I just keep trying to climb into the pages of my W-S Catalog!!!
I've been thinking about trying to make a cauliflower tagine - type dish, recently. I think this pan would be the perfect piece of equipment to do so!!
I knoowww...the catalog keeps me going when I don't have a store nearby. A Cauliflower Tagine sounds really good!
I would love to use this pan to make a batch of summer ratatouille (now if my tomatoes would just hurry up and start ripening....)
That sounds so good!
Wendy, the use of this pan is fabulous and it looks good too. Cant wait to try this recipe
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
I am in love with food blogs, happy to have yours to add to the list! This chicken looks mouthwatering and you styled the food so well.
Be the author of your own story,
I would make a pork and veggy stir fry.
I love stir fry!

Sounds wonderful and I'm all for low carb meals like this one...and I don't mind pulling out more spices myself when cooking 🙂
I am the same way. I always start with recipe ideas thinking I'll keep the ingredient list simple and have to hold myself back from pulling out all of my spices. 🙂
This looks SO good and I love cauliflower any which way as well as chipotle, but I think I'll try this with bone-in chicken (maybe like 3) as I'm not a fan of chicken legs. I love cilantro too so a sprinkle on the top might be nice. Thanks for always sharing such great recipes.
That sounds good - I need to try this with cilantro! I love it too and that is such a great idea. Hope you enjoy!
I'd love to hear from some people that tried this. Was it good?
