I really enjoyed this combination - more than I expected to, actually. My only complaint with the recipe is that the cooking time seems to be off. If the chicken is first browned, then allowed to cook for the length of time suggested, I'm afraid you'll end up with rubber. I zapped my sprouts (halved) and onions with the chicken broth in the microwave to get them started, then added the browned chicken and cooked for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. This turned out very well.


I had fresh brussels sprouts and chicken to make for dinner. Found this recipe, read reviews. Some said bland. Not bland now, fried 4 slices chopped bacon, removed, added some olive oil and sauteed chicken sprinkled with garlic powder.Added sprouts and rest of ing. put bacon on top followed baking directions. Turned out very good.


i like this recipe because i love brussel sprouts. i made it with leftover brussel sprouts from Thanksgiving and rosemary from the spice rack. good, easy, healthy meal. served with couscous.
