Ease of Making: 4/5
This recipe, Single-Skillet Chicken Thighs with Bacon, Brussels Sprouts from Christine Byrne at Buzzfeed, was fantastic, but then again how can you go wrong when there are bacon and Brussels sprouts together?! We ended up using chicken drumsticks instead of thighs, as this is what we had on hand, and substituted the apple juice for water as I didn’t feel like keeping a can of apple juice in the fridge for weeks on end (we don’t really drink juice).
This recipe was really easy to put together and luckily for me, Lenny bought pre-chopped Brussel sprouts at the grocery store this week as they were on sale. 😀 I really dislike chopping things in general, although I like it a bit more now that we have ceramic knives — Side shout out to Justin & Kristin for that awesome Christmas gift! Here are some photos from our cooking adventure:
After the stove-top stage, ready for the oven. The recipe might seem like it’s calling for a lot of bacon, but it really isn’t by the time it cooks down.
Ready for serving.
We ate in the living room – it was a long day – but that meant that Sally put on her stealth-level begging skills to “earn” some apple and/or bacon slices…
“What? Who, me?”
