• 1/2 teaspoon pepper

• 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

• 3 tablespoons honey

• 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

• 1 lb fresh Brussels sprouts

• 1 large fresh red pear

• 1 container fresh pre-diced butternut squash (12–16 oz)


1. Preheat large, nonstick sauté pan on medium 2–3 minutes. Place 2 tablespoons oil in pan; season chicken with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 12–14 minutes, turning often, or until well-browned and 165°F.

3. Remove tough root end from sprouts and cut in half; place in microwave-safe bowl. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 minutes. Cut pear in half and remove core, then cut into bite-size pieces.

4. Add butternut squash and pears to sprouts; cover and microwave on HIGH for 4 more minutes or until sprouts are tender. Drain well. Return chicken to pan on medium-high; add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, sprouts mixture, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook 3–4 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until lightly browned.
