Chicken with Sweet Potato and Apples

image When it’s so cold outside I need something hot and hearty to comfort me. This recipe was sure to deliver that.

Yesterday we had a big snow storm here in New York.  We all hunkered down and stayed in.  There was lots of tv and candy crushing going on in my home.

Theres nothing like the wafts of deliciousness coming from the kitchen to bring everyone together. Dinner was a family affair and we all enjoyed the food and the company

Here’s what you’ll need:

4 boneless chicken cutlets

4tsp. Olive oil

1 1/2 cups of Brussels sprouts, quartered

1 medium sweet potato cut into 1/2″ cubes


1 medium onion chopped

2 golden delicious apples cut in 3/4″ cubes


4 cloves of garlic, sliced

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 cup chicken broth



Season chicken with salt and pepper.  Heat 2 tsp of oil in large non stick frying pan over medium high heat and add chicken and cook until lightly browned, flip and continue  to cook through, about 5 minutes.

Transfer to plate

Return pan to heat and add remaining 2 tsp of oil. Add Brussels sprouts, sweet potato and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally until crisp tender. Stir in apples, garlic, thyme, and cinnamon.  Cook 3 minutes and pout in 1/2 cup of the chicken broth.  Bring to a boil and cook until evaporated, about 2 minutes.  Add reserved chicken and remaining broth. Season with salt and pepper as needed.

I serve over brown rice.

Bon appetite,
