Chicken, Sweet Potato and Apple Skillet

I made this yesterday and it combines some of my favorite things (Sweet Potatoes and Apples). I think that I might try adding zucchini next time. This recipe is perfect for a cold night when comfort food is the only thing that will satisfy.

Chicken, Sweet Potato and Apple Skillet

1lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2" cubes
4 tsp olive oil
3 slices of bacon, chopped
1 1/2 cup brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1/2" cubes
1 medium onion, chopped
2 golden delicious apples, peeled, cored and cute into 3/4" cubes
4 cloves of garlic, sliced
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup chicken broth
1/8 tsp salt

  • Season chicken lightly with salt
  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to plate.
  • Return pan to heat and add remaining 2 tbsp oil. Stir in bacon and cook until brown, about 2 minutes.
  • Add Brussels sprouts, sweet potato, and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in apples. garlic, thyme, and cinnamon. Cook 3 minutes.
  • Pour in 1/2 cup of broth, bring to a boil, and cook until evaporated, about 2 minutes. 
  • Add chicken and remaining 1/2 cup of broth. Season with salt and black pepper as needed. Cook until hot, about 2 minutes.
