- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and reduce into half inch cubes (about eight oz.)
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into 3/4 inch cubes
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chook breasts, reduce into half of-inch cubes
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
- half teaspoon black pepper
- four slices thick-reduce bacon, chopped
- 3 cups Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered (about three/four pound)
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme or half teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon floor cinnamon
- 4 cloves garlic, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
- 1 cup decreased-sodium chook broth, divided
- Heat the olive oil in a large, nonstick or forged iron skillet over medium high, till warm and shimmering. Add the chicken, half teaspoon kosher salt, and black pepper. Cook till gently browned and cooked thru, about 5 mins. Transfer to plate covered with paper towels.
- Reduce skillet warmness to medium low. Add the chopped bacon and cook dinner until crisp and brown and the fat has rendered, approximately 8 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a paper towel-coated plate (I surely laid some other paper towel on pinnacle of the plate with the bird, then stacked the bacon on that). Discard all but 1 half tablespoons bacon fats from the pan.
- Increase skillet warmness back to medium high. Add Brussels sprouts, sweet potato, onion, and ultimate 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring once in a while, until crisp-smooth and the onions are beginning to look translucent, approximately 10 mins.
- Stir in the apples, garlic, thyme, and cinnamon. Cook 30 seconds, then pour in 1/2 cup of the broth. Bring to a boil and cook till evaporated, about 2 mins. Add the reserved bird and final half cup broth. Cook until heated via, about 2 minutes. Stir in reserved bacon and serve heat.
- Store leftovers inside the refrigerator for up to a few days (the bacon will soften relatively, but the meal continues to be yummy). Reheat gently in the microwave with a splash of fowl stock to keep it from drying out.
