1 med. onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced

Add chicken, cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 min. Add broth, coconut milk, fish(soy) sauce, and brown sugar and bring to a boil. Add cauliflower and reduce heat to med-low, simmer, stirring occasionally until chicken is cooked through and cauliflower is tender.

Wanna try this too! Only thing I have to be careful with is the coconut milk - sometimes it accidentally happens that more goes there than the recipes tell me... don't know how come ;)
