Now do I have a dinner for you that’s filling, tasty, and good for you!
Bruschetta Chicken with Yams and Brussel Sprouts! You’ll need:
- Chicken (Thin sliced is what I prefer)
- Fresh Garlic
- Brussels Sprouts
- Salt + Pepper
- Tomatoes (I like the cherry tomatoes)
- Red Onion
- EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
- Balsamic Reduction
- Whatever herbs you have in your spice cabinet
This is probably one of the most easy dinners I have ever made!
While cooking this I wanted to drink some wine, but I am going to a late night yoga class, so I am drinking water to hydrate before. This is no excuse for you though! I know you had a long day, so open a bottle of white wine and take a swig!
Okay now let’s get down to business, I first diced the brussels sprouts into quarters and sliced the yams thin enough for them to cook faster in the oven. I used a good couple handfuls of brussel sprouts and two yams. Measure what how much you cook by how many people you are cooking for, I am only cooking for my husband and I so we didn’t need that much.
I always put foil down when I bake anything for an easier clean up. Then I drizzle a little EVOO on the foil and lay down the veggies. Then, I put S+P, garlic and the herbs that I have up in my spice cabinet and kinda mix around the veggies. Last, top the veggies with a little EVOO.
**Hey take a drink of that delicious wine you are drinking!**
Next, I make the bruschetta mixture. I just cut in half the cherry tomatoes, chop finely the garlic, basil and red onion. I used about half a container of tomatoes and a quarter of a small red onion (my husband said it needed more onion, so use what you like) I also used about a whole small container of basil. Then just gave a dash of S+P and give a good mix!
When the veggies are almost done then start cooking the chicken! And take another drink because you almost completed making dinner! I just cooked the chicken with garlic and some pepper because you’ll get enough flavor with the bruschetta.
Then when everything is done PLATE IT!
Once you top the bruschetta mixture, drizzle the balsamic glaze on top! My husband told me what would really make this extra good is if we had some feta to sprinkle on top of the chicken, so I added it to the recipe for the next time I make this!
High five you did it! I hope you enjoy this dinner as much as we did! and I hope your wine is super tasty!
