I have an older cast iron pan that doesn’t get any use and therefore isn’t seasoned very well (the nice black sheen on a cast iron pan that comes from years of cooking – forming a non stick coating). I saw this recipe for One-Pan Chicken, Sausage, and Brussels Sprouts on Serious Eats and knew I had to try it. I LOVE one pan meals, anything roastedm and this recipe also served the dual purpose of seasoning my pan.
I actually cooked this last November and meant to post about it then because it’s the perfect ta-da! meal for holiday company. Easy and gorgeous presentation. But ya know….life and all that jazz.
You can click the Serious Eats link above for the full recipe but here’s a quick photo recap…
Here is the first layer – brussels, shallots, lemon, garlic – tossed in a little olive oil, salt and pepper
Add the meat – chicken (tossed in a very tasty rub of garlic, mustard, honey, Worcestershire sauce, rosemary and oil) and pieces of sausage. (obviously need to be a carnivore for this one! lol)
Pop in a 450 degree oven for about 30 minutes and voila! A gorgeous one-pan meal!
It really was super easy and came out just like the picture from Serious Eats (without their pretty rosemary garnish) and tasted delish! The only things I would have done differently are 1/4 my brussels sprouts instead of halving because they were kind of big and took longer to cook and didn’t get that pretty carmelization and maybe less chicken because I have a smaller pan and got a little crowded in there.
You can make this in a baking pan if you don’t have a cast iron pan.
Do you guys have any good one-pan dinner recipes (meat or vegetarian?)
