A note about serious food allergies
Pumpkins aren't just a seasonal thing. (And, yes, pepitas are little pumpkin seeds, from certain kinds of pumpkins.) Pepitas add a rich, nutty flavor to this tender chicken, plus a nice bit of textural contrast. Both are tied together nicely by a rich, chipotle-dusted demi sauce, a tinge of South of the Border influence. To every flavor, there is a season, but deliciousness is a year-round phenomenon. Tip: if you're looking for the right texture for the sauce, dip a spoon in and see how well it sticks to the back. If it coats, you're good to go.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

If using pork chops, in Step 2, roast Brussels sprouts, 12 minutes. Follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 3 and 4, searing 2-3 minutes per side. Add topping, and roast until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 6-8 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.
If using steak, in Step 2, roast Brussels sprouts, 11 minutes. Follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 3 and 4, searing 2-3 minutes per side. Add topping, and roast until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes.
Prepare the Ingredients
Trim stems off Brussels sprouts and halve vertically (quarter if larger than a ping-pong ball).
Coarsely chop pepitas.
Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt.
Start the Brussels Sprouts
Place Brussels sprouts on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into Brussels sprouts.
Spread into a single layer on one half of baking sheet. Roast in hot oven, 8 minutes.
Carefully remove from oven. Brussels sprouts will finish cooking in a later step.
While Brussels sprouts roast, start chicken.
Start the Chicken
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and cook until browned, 2-3 minutes per side.
Transfer chicken to empty half of baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Spread mayonnaise evenly on chicken and top with pepitas, pressing gently to adhere.
Roast the Chicken and Brussels Sprouts
Roast Brussels sprouts and chicken in hot oven until Brussels sprouts are tender and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 10-12 minutes.
Drizzle honey over roasted Brussels sprouts. Rest chicken, at least 3 minutes.
While chicken rests, make sauce.
Make Sauce and Finish Dish
Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat and add demi-glace, ¼ cup water, and a pinch of seasoning blend. Bring to a simmer.
Once simmering, stir occasionally until sauce thickens, 2-3 minutes.
Remove from burner. Taste, and add remaining seasoning blend if desired. Swirl in butter until combined.
