If you are as busy as I am, a meal that requires little attention and only needs one pan to cook makes life a little simpler. This recipe is also a delicious way to introduce Brussels Sprouts (aka Baby Cabbages in our house) to your family if they haven’t had them before.
Oh, yeah, and it is really simple to make (and did I mention that it only uses one dish!!) My husband isn’t the biggest fan of chicken, but this is one way I make it that he actually not only tolerates but enjoys it.
