This chicken and Brussels sprouts recipe will be ready in about 30 minutes or so, and makes for a very filling and satisfying meal.

As I refine my clean eating diet more and more, I’m finding that I’m really beginning to appreciate simple flavors in foods. No longer do I need the intense flavor of a bag of Doritos or the richness of a full-fat cheese sauce.

Clean Eating Chicken And Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Don’t get me wrong, for a long time I did. A lot of my recipes here reflect that. Many have a more intense flavor than this dish. But I truly believe that the more you eat clean, the more real food tastes good! Your palate adjusts, and suddenly you don’t need to have that gigantic explosion of overly intense flavor that comes from icky things like MSG and other chemicals produced in labs for their taste.

Now, I’m not trying to say in a polite way that this dish has no flavor. On the contrary! It has a fabulous flavor! I wouldn’t be sharing the recipe with you if it didn’t. But the flavors themselves are simply…. simple! So if you’ve arrived at that place in your clean eating adventure where you can really appreciate the flavor of real, honest food, I believe you’ll love this dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Brussels sprouts
  • 7 oz. chicken breast (baked and cut into small pieces)
  • 3 small shallots (diced)
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a pan and cook over medium heat, covered for about 10 minutes.
  • Remove lid and continue to cook until all liquids have cooked out.
  • If you prefer the Brussels sprouts to be a bit browned, continue to cook without adding liquid for an additional 5-10 minutes (Don't worry too much about burning the pan. Without oil, it's an easy clean up with a copper or metal scrubber).

    I made this recipe tonight and it was soooo good! I was worried I wouldn’t like it cause i hadn’t eaten Brussel Sprouts since i was a kid and i hated them then. But i am looking for ways to get more greens into my diet so i thought i would give it a try. So glad I decided to take a chance!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Laura – That’s wonderful! It pays to take a chance sometimes!

  2. I made this for dinner last night . Wow! What flavor! I absolutely loved it! Simple to make and the flavor was out of this world! Thank you!

  3. I so love brussel sprouts–LOVE them. Congrats on your weight loss. I started two weeks ago and so far have lost 6.5 pounds. Yippee for looser jeans!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lisa – Loose jeans are a fabulous thing! Congrats!

  4. Ok, I’m scared of brussel sprouts, but willing to try. I think I’ll put this on the menu for next week. I agree with the adjusting palate thing. The processed foods seem more and more unappealing. I’m hoping I’ll like this dish. I really need to get more varied with my veggies. Thanks for all of your work!! I’m lovin’ this.

      Kelly – I hope you enjoy it!

  6. graciouspantry says:

    I wouldn’t recommend it with this one. I do have a freezer foods section here though.

  7. Sooo yummy!! Never knew I loved Brussel Sprouts…came right to your sight when I bounght them to see what to do with them…YUM!!

  8. Is there a mistake on the chicken amount?? It says 4 ounces…did you mean 4 breasts? I can’t see how the calorie count can be correct if it is only 4oz…help!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Emma – Yes, my apologies. I just updated both the recipe and the data. Thanks for pointing it out. 🙂

  9. This was a delicious recipe! I subbed out a lot of things for what I had on hand: homemade beef stock and asparagus instead of chicken stock and brussel sprouts. It was delicious! I never thought to pan cook my meat and veggies this way. I did use real garlic instead of powder and pan cooked cut up chicken before mixing everything together (instead of baked). Anyway, thank you for the great base recipe I’m sure to use again and again. I’ve pinned a bunch more of your recipes on here too 🙂 can’t wait!

      Courtnie – So glad you enjoyed it! 😀

  10. Trying this tomorrow ! Any healthy eggplant recipies ?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Laurie – Sorry, no. I’m not an eggplant fan, so typically I don’t cook with it.
