I love chicken and brussels and bacon. This recipe is so easy and delicious and very good for you. Be sure to buy uncured bacon/bacon cured only with salt. This recipe takes very little time and I, of course, ate mine next to a large serving of sweet potato fries! If you are tired of sweet potato fries or sweet potatoes in general I do apologize, but, I love them and don’t mind eating them every single day! 🙂 Again, find what works for you and your body. This is my favorite carb choice so I eat tons of them.
- 2 chicken breasts, cubed
- 4 slices bacon, cut into small pieces
- 1 bag of brussels, ends cut off and sliced in half
- FOR THE CHICKEN: sea salt, balsamic vinegar, pepper, olive oil, red pepper flakes, garlic powder – (I don’t measure – you can’t get it wrong. Just add dashes of everything and enough balsamic vinegar to coat the chicken).
Preheat the oven to 400 – if you are cooking potato fries with this then your oven may already be turned on. Add some coconut oil to a cast iron pan and cook your chicken with all the seasonings. Set aside. Now add your bacon and cook for a few minutes until almost done. Then add all the remaining ingredients, including the brussels, and let cook for a few minutes. Add some more sea salt and coconut oil if needed, as well as balsamic vinegar at the end!
Stick the pan in the oven at around 400 degrees or so (hotter is ok too) and let finish cooking for just under 5 minutes. Serves 2. Feel free to tweak this recipe as desired.
