Ingredients

  • For the Chicken:
    • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • For the Brussels Sprouts:
    • 500g Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • For the Hot Honey Sauce:
    • 1/4 cup honey
    • 1 tablespoon hot sauce (adjust to taste)
    • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • A pinch of chili flakes (optional)

Directions

  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
    • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and cook until golden brown on both sides and no longer pink in the center (about 5-7 minutes per side). Remove chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Cook the Brussels Sprouts:
    • In the same skillet, add more olive oil if needed. Add Brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and cook until they are golden and slightly crispy (about 8-10 minutes), stirring occasionally.
  3. Make the Hot Honey Sauce:
    • In a small bowl, combine honey, hot sauce, apple cider vinegar, minced garlic, and chili flakes (if using). Mix well.
  4. Combine and Serve:
    • Return the chicken to the skillet with the Brussels sprouts. Pour the hot honey sauce over the chicken and Brussels sprouts. Stir gently to coat everything in the sauce.
    • Cook for another 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
    • Serve hot, garnished with fresh herbs if desired.
