One-Skillet Chicken with Apples & Brussels Sprouts
This single pan chicken dish is filled with warm fall flavors for a hearty, healthy family meal!
Chicken, Brussels sprouts and apples are the heart of this tasty autumn dinner. The flavors work wonderfully together, and you get a good dose of vitamins, too. Brussels sprouts are a great source of fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin K, which is a nutrient vital for bone health.
For more fall flavor (and extra vitamins) you can add some chopped sweet potatoes or butternut squash here as well. Dice them small, then add with the Brussels sprouts so everything can cook through evenly.
To make this easy skillet chicken dish, start by sautéing chicken tenders with chopped onions until browned. Set aside, then use the same skillet to cook the Brussels sprouts in a bit of coconut oil. Add celery, apples, rosemary, garlic, and cinnamon. Continue to cook until the veggies and apples are soft, another 10 minutes. Your kitchen should smell pretty amazing right now!
Finish by adding the chicken back to the skillet, and add a dash of apple cider vinegar and water. Cook until the liquid evaporates, then serve your autumn chicken skillet while it’s hot!
