This dish boasts all the flavor of takeout but with fresher veggies and no greasy fried chicken in sight. Replacing some of the chicken with cauliflower gives the meal vitamins C and K, not to mention an irresistible caramelized nuttiness. For a spicier supper, replace some of the ketchup with sriracha.
