  • Toss Brussels sprouts, apple, and pancetta with 1 tablespoon olive oil and rosemary in a bowl. Spread into a single layer on a sheet pan.

  • Leave space on the pan for the chicken thighs. Toss chicken with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the same bowl; place on the sheet pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, stirring the Brussels sprouts mixture every 15 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 40 to 45 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Use your favorite herb instead of rosemary, if desired.

I hate brussel sprouts but I had some and this recipe changed my opinion of them! I recommend using a tart-juicy apple like Granny Smith or Honey Crisp. Add the vegetable-fruit after the chicken has cooked for half the time. Yum! Read More

This was easy and the chicken crisped up nicely and was juicy. The side got a little over cooked which made the Brussels a little bitter and the apple was mushy and tasteless. The pancetta was also a little too crispy. I didn t leave the side in the oven as long as the chicken. I took it out after 30 minutes but probably should have taken it out after 20. I like the concept. Perhaps another time I ll start the meat first and add the side at the half way mark. Read More

Easy enough to make but I found the flavor a little bland - it needed some acid. I will probably make again but will drizzle some balsamic over it and increase the seasoning. Read More

Delicious quick family dinner. My teenagers devoured this meal. It was so easy! I used bacon instead of pancetta and dried rosemary instead of fresh. Still amazing! Read More

This was easy just like the directions said. It was very tasty the whole family liked it and that doesn't happen often. I will make it again but I think I will use bacon instead of the pancetta. Read More

This is oh so good quick and easy. I didn't have pancetta but the dish was great without it. I also used some spicy spices on the chicken! Read More
