This Chicken with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Grapes recipe easily dresses up minimal ingredients with tons of flavor! The obvious base of this dish is the chicken, brussels sprouts, and grapes.
I chose to use chicken tenders when making this but you could also grab boneless skinless chicken breast and slice it up into strips to use. The chicken then gets seasoned with salt and black pepper before being cooked on the stovetop in olive oil.
As for the roasted Brussels sprouts mixture, that will get laid out on a baking sheet and baked in the oven! To make this part of the dish the Brussels sprouts are first trimmed and quartered before being tossed on the pan with the red grapes.
The grapes and sprouts are then stirred together with olive oil, shallots, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. After they’re baked up to mouthwatering perfection the chopped parsley and walnuts are stirred in!
To serve you just place a few chicken tenders on your plate and spoon on the brussels sprouts mixture!
