1Steam cauliflower in a vegetable steamer until very tender.
2Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
3Preheat large nonstick skillet over medium high heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add onion and cook for 5 – 8 min stirring frequently until onion softens and starts to lightly brown. Add chicken broth by tablespoons to keep onions from burning if the pan becomes too dry.
4Add garlic, oregano, lemon zest and juice, 1/2 cup chicken broth and wine. Cook another 5 minutes to reduce, then set aside in a bowl.
5In the same pan, add remaining olive oil (1 tablespoon). Add chicken breasts and brown on both sides. Remove from heat.
6Top chicken with half of the onion mixture and add remaining chicken broth to the pan. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes until chicken is done. Remove chicken to a plate and keep warm, scraping off onion mixture into the pan. Place the pan on the stove over medium heat.
7Add capers and scrape up bits from the pan into the sauce. Reduce sauce over medium heat for 3 – 5 minutes. If you need more sauce, simply add a little more broth or white wine. Remove from heat and add half of the Greek yogurt, mixing thoroughly to make the sauce.
8Remove cauliflower to a large bowl and add remaining onion mixture and remaining Greek yogurt. Whip with a mixer until still slightly chunky, but thoroughly combined. Season with salt and pepper.
9Serve chicken sliced and topped with sauce alongside smashed cauliflower. Garnish with parsley.
