  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim stems off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball).

    Peel apple, quarter, and remove core. Cut into 1/2" dice.

    Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan. 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 and apple.

  3. 3

    Cook the Brussels Sprouts and Apple

    Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-heat. Place Brussels sprouts in a single layer, cut side down, in hot pan. Cook undisturbed until deep golden brown, 4-5 minutes.

    Add apple and stir occasionally until beginning to get tender, 4-5 minutes

    Add seasoned salt, then stir occasionally until Brussels sprouts and apples are tender, 3-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Make the Sauce
