  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pounds Boneless Skinless Chicken Tenders or Breasts cut into cubes
  • salt + pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon divided
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large yellow onion chopped
  • 16 ounces Brussels sprouts trimmed and cut into quarters
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 4 apples I used Fuji and Pink Crisp as they were what was available, peeled, cored and chopped into cubes
  • 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth start with less, add more as needed
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 3 teaspoons fresh thyme


  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat (I used my 13-inch cast iron skillet, but any large skillet or Dutch oven will work great). Add olive oil and heat until shimmering. Add your Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken to the skillet, spreading evenly over the bottom. Season with salt, pepper, 1 teaspoon of the ground cinnamon and dried thyme. Cook until chicken is lightly browned and cooked through- approximately 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once cooked, transfer chicken to a plate to rest.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the skillet and add onion, garlic and approximately 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Stir and cook for approximately 1 minute. Add Brussels sprouts and sweet potato and continue to cook, stirring occasionally. Continue to cook until vegetables are start to soften and Brussels sprouts start to brown, approximately 10 minutes.
  • Stir in apples, cinnamon, lemon juice and lemon zest. Cook for 1 minute, or until everything is fully mixed. Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cook until evaporated.
  • Add chicken back to the skillet and stir in fresh thyme. Best served warm.
