maple dijon chicken & brussel sprouts (foodie fridays)

this is, by far, one of the easiest & most delicious chicken recipes. with just a couple of ingredients and almost no hands on time, you can make this yummy maple dijon chicken. just look at that beautiful, golden chicken.

here is the list of ingredients and you can find the directions here.
  • Chicken thighs- 1 package (5 or 6)
  • Dijon mustard- 1/2 cup
  • Maple syrup- 1/4 cup
  • Rice/rice wine vinegar- 1 tablespoon
  • Fresh rosemary (i used dried and it was fine)
  • Salt and pepper
 easy peasy. go make it, now!

something else that i have been loving lately is olive oil & balsamic vinegar seared brussel sprouts. i've never made them with the chicken, but i think they would be good together for dinner. there isn't really a recipe, just make them to taste. chop the bottoms off the brussel sprouts and then cut them in half and peel off the first layer or so. rinse them and shake them dry. heat olive oil in a frying pan and toss the sprouts in. keep it at a pretty high heat so they get a little bit browned. you want them to be cooked but not too mushy. sprinkle with sea salt. when they are almost done, pour some balsamic vinegar over them and let them sit for a minute or so. put onto a plate and top with sunflower seeds and crumbled feta. you can drizzle a little extra balsamic on too, if you want. these are savoury and oh, so good! i ate an entire plate for lunch the other day.

 bon appetit!
