This is one of my family's favorite cold weather recipes! Even my picky 5 year old will happily dig into his plate! If you put bacon on it, he'll eat anything! I didn't even personally love Brussel sprouts, but this recipe changed my tune!



It checks all of the flavor boxes - salty bacon, sweet roasted potatoes, tart caramelized apples, and tender savory chicken. I also love that this recipe is easily customizable! For the vegetarian, simply skip the meat and serve with tempeh or beans. Want extra veggies? Carrots, parsnips and golden beets would taste delicious! You can even swap out the chicken thighs for boneless skinless breasts for a lower fat option!


Roasting everything together on one pan ultimately saves cooking time and makes clean up WAY easier! The flavors meld together and the higher roasting temperature crisps the bacon and caramelizes the veggies and apples. Is your mouth watering yet???


Tip, for a shorter cook time, simply cut your ingredients into smaller pieces!
