For the cauliflower and thyme mash:
250ml chicken stock
1head of cauliflower, cut into small pieces
40g butter
1 tsp fresh thyme leaves

For the chicken:
30g butter
4 chicken fillets
4 spring onions, chopped
230g sour cream

  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and allow to simmer for five minutes.
  4. Turn the chicken fillets over. Cover and let simmer again for another 10 minutes or until the juices run clear and the chicken is cooked throughout.

  6. Add the chopped spring onions to the chicken in the pan. Stir and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  7. Turn off the heat. Add the sour cream and season to taste. Mix well.
  8. Cover and let stand on the stove top for five minutes. Stir well, then serve with the mashed cauliflower.
