Baked Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken

As some of you already know, I was on vacation for a week visiting my Grandma. I too had the pleasure of visiting with some of my other family members. I had an excellent time! 🙂

So anyway back to the original subject lol.

Tonight I prepared this incredibly easy chicken recipe that I threw together for supper. With only a few ingredients, I’m sure you have everything in your kitchen ready to go. Even though it’s baked uncovered, the inside stays plump and moist. BAKED GARLIC BROWN SUGAR CHICKEN.

The chicken is baked in a sweet, garlic-y sauce. Yum! 😀 Try this recipe if you’re tired of bland, boring, and tasteless chicken. My family loved it!!!

Pistachios with Brussel Sprouts

 

I love eating pistachios! They are one of my favorite snacks, especially when it comes to eating healthy. I know I have already mentioned this before in a few of my posts, but since I am trying my best to eating healthier lol, one of my goals is to strive eating more veggies, particularly ones that I’m not crazy about but want to learn to appreciate them and or have not yet tried.

Furthermore, brussel sprouts are one of the veggies that I wanted to try, and I am happy to say that tonight was my night to try brussel Sprouts. My opinion on the vegetable at the moment are; well lol, I am not too crazy about them. Oh well, I gave it a try, and that’s what matters. 🙂 However, I am determined to teach my taste buds to appreciate Brussel Sprouts. Haha! 😀

Despite the fact that I’m not a huge fan of this veggie at the moment, I still had a blast cooking this healthy and delicious Pistachio with Brussel Sprouts recipe with my sister (Caylee). Also, I found it on Food Network’s Facebook page, created by Trisha Yearwood.

Pistachios with Brussel Sprouts

Ingredients

1 Tbsp. Olive oil
1 lb. Brussels sprouts, rinsed, trimmed and halved
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
2 Tbsp. Lemon juice
1/2 C. shelled pistachios, finely chopped
Sea salt, for sprinkling

Directions

In a large skillet, heat the oil over high-medium heat. Add the Brussels sprouts and shallot and saute until just wilted, about five minutes, being careful not to let them burn. Combine the lemon zest, juice, and pistachios and continue to saute until completely heated through, three to five minutes. Top with a sprinkle of sea salt.
