    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan and cook undisturbed until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes on one side. Transfer chicken to prepared baking sheet, seared side up. Wipe pan clean and reserve. Roast in hot oven until browned and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes. While chicken roasts, cook Brussels sprouts.
