I got this lovely recipe from Simple Recipes. There are a lot of simple and wonderful recipes on that blog. I always want to try them. I finally got a chance. I mentioned that I’ve been eating a lot of Brussels Sprouts lately, so it was nice to find a different way to prepare the vegetables. The title is "Peeled Brussels Sprouts", but you don’t have to peel the Brussels Sprouts. I’ve tried both ways and like them equally. The chicken and Brussels Sprouts are just delicious! Love it! Thanks, Juliana!
P.S. One more thing! The recipe calls for blanchingthe brussels sprouts. In this case, I sauteed them, instead. That’s what I like. Then I added the sauteed Brussels sprouts to the chicken.
Peeled Brussels Sprouts and Chicken
1 chicken breast, cut into small chunks
3-4 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon soy sauce
½ tablespoon corn starch
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
½ lb Brussels sprouts peeled (or cut in half)
Marinate the chicken with garlic, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Set aside. In the meantime blanch the sprouts. Make sure that you just blanch, otherwise it will be mush. Just before sautéing the chicken add the corn starch by coating slightly the chicken pieces.
In a wok, sauté the chicken in olive oil. Set aside once the chicken is fully cooked. In the same wok brown the onion, add the blanched peeled Brussels sprouts. Mix gently and add the chicken back to the wok.
Stir gently and serve hot.
