Balsamic Chicken over "Mashed" Cauliflower

Comfort food. I think one of the hardest things about "dieting" is that we miss the foods that really fill us up and comfort us. For me that is mashed potatoes. I have a love for them that is up there with if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life they may be the winner. I found this amazing Balsamic Chicken recipe while pinning on Pinterest (if you have never been there...GO!)and used it as my jumping point for this recipe. I threw them in the crockpot at 2pm and were were eating dinner at 5:30 and the chicken was perfect! On to the mashed cauliflower..words cannot describe how good these were and I bet I could serve them to a dinner guest and they would think they were potatoes. Make this dish. PLEASE!
