I have this conflicting theme in my head that pops up twice a year. Do I love fall/winter the most, or spring/summer? This may come as a shocker, but most of my debate lies within seasonal eats. I mean, knee high boots or wedge sandals is definitely a toss up, but how on earth do you choose between pot roasts and pumpkin lattes versus burgers and margaritas? The pressure is too much. Luckily with this herby 30 minute chicken and brussels sprouts bake, you can have all the fresh taste of summer in a warm and easy dinner just like the fall.
You know when you step outside and it’s just a tad too cold for short sleeves, but warm enough for flip flops? Or when you come home from a busy day and it’s too dreary to throw something on the grill, but too time consuming to whip up something warm and comforting from scratch?
Take a deep breath. There are more important things to stress about. Like light pink or hot pink toenail polish, team Edward or team Jacob, milk chocolate or dark chocolate.
This herby 30 minute chicken and brussels sprouts bake will NOT stress you out, it will only delight your tastebuds and find a perfect spot in your belly. Aaaaaaand you’ll feel good about this paleo, Whole30 compliant, healthy meal. Made with Tyson® Individually Frozen Chicken Breasts, brussels sprouts, paleo mayo, and a bunch of herby goodness, it will become the perfect 30-minute meal you can make over and over again.
Spoiler alert: NO THAWING NECESSARY! Ah ha! Another stressor out the window. Yes, a one pot chicken bake, under 30 minutes, with virtually no extra steps involved. And with 21 grams of protein, no added hormones or steroids, and easy to find at your local Walmart, frozen chicken just got a whole lot easier (and tastier) with Tyson® Individually Frozen Thin Sliced Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts.
If you love the rich taste of ranch dressing on fresh veggies, you’ll love this. Paleo mayo, mixed with onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and dried dill, combined with sautéed shredded brussels sprouts, green onions, and fresh basil is a dinner time chicken game changer. Easy, one-pot meals that are not only healthy, but tasty are a no-brainer!
To start, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. and wash one pound of brussels sprouts, then pat dry. Using a sharp knife, cut each brussels sprout into small strips in order to get a large pan of shredded sprouts.
Once all the brussels sprouts are in the pan, add one tablespoon olive oil and heat over medium for 4-6 minutes, or until the sprouts have softened slightly. Take the pan off the stovetop then add two tablespoons paleo mayo (recipe found here), garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and dried dill. Chop 3 green onions and add to the pan. Next, grab two Tyson® Individually Frozen Chicken Breasts out of the freezer and place directly into the pan with the brussels sprouts mixture. Top with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and drizzle one additional tablespoon of olive oil over the top.
Place into the oven (uncovered) and bake for 20-25 minutes, until chicken is cooked throughout. When ready to serve, top with fresh shredded basil and 1-2 more chopped green onions.
Time Saver Tip
Slice the brussels sprouts and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to sauté. Also make the paleo mayo beforehand and store in a glass mason jar in the refrigerator.Print

Perfect meal! Brussels and chicken, I’d never pass it up!
And I am ALL summer for everything, but for food, well, there is no season there 😉 I take it all!
Hahaha I love that comment. I couldn’t agree more. Totally virtually high-fiving my fellow food lover!
I like the way you used the Brussels sprouts in this recipe – looks delicious!!
It seems like brussels sprouts and chicken would be such a blah type of meal, but this one certainly isn’t! Thanks Lauren!
Yum! My husband and I both adore brussels sprouts. This is making me miss my kitchen – I want to be able to cook dinner again!

You are so welcome Maggie! Enjoy this easy dinner!
My husband has been dying to get me to try brussel sprouts and I think I could actually try these. This chicken sounds great and I love the dish you made. [client]
I hope you do Janet! This dish definitely doesn’t have the traditional brussels sprouts vibe – so much like chicken and ranch. Thanks for stopping by!
Nicole @ Work|Wear|Wander says

I hope you do Nicole! ENJOY!

Brussel spouts are my most fav and I think I could talk my husband into liking ths since they are chopped! I love how easy and delicious this recipe is! Pinning for later!
You TOTALLY could. My hubs isn’t the biggest brussels fan but all the flavor in this meal really converted him. I think yours may do the same after you make this! Thanks Kristen!
Heather @ Polyglot Jot says

Beverley @ Born to Sweat says
YUUUUM. I would totally make this with shrimp (since i dont eat meat). and i’m totally the same re: summer/winter. whenever its winter i want to wear my dresses, when its summer i want to wear my darkest pants. WHY BEVERLEY. WHYYYY
Oooo I am digging that idea! Ugh I hear ya girl – like right now, I’m in shorts and my windows are open, but yet I kind of want spiced cider and my fuzzy pjs. We can never win….
Those contradictions of summer… They keep life interesting… It’s funny because sometimes in summer, sweat pants still sound really good to me.
And I love one pot chicken dishes. They make those nights when you are really tired so much less intimidating.
Sweat pants are clutch ANY time of year. It’s just one of those things! 😉 You and I would totally rock the sweats in 90 degrees and devour this chicken dinner! I am sure of it.
I love brussels sprouts so much so I’m sure I’m gonna adore this!
YESSS another brussels-lover!!!! I totally hope you adore this AND make it a dinner staple in your kitchen Susannah!
Chrissa this looks DELISH!
I love a recipe that incorportes brussels in a tasty way. I usually bake mine seperate with maple/chicken stock/apples/onions as a side, but I love this chicken-bake take!
Also, totally with you on the spring/summer winter/fall dilemma. Foods and Fashion are at the heart of that conundrum for me!
Laura @ http://www.cookwineandthinker.com
Oh DANG Laura, your brussels recipe sounds TO DIE FOR! I must try this creation. Thanks for the inspiration and I hope you enjoy this version!
This was very tasty! Will be making this often.
Glad you liked it Cindy!
