Boneless and skinless does not mean flavorless! At least not in the hands of our chefs. They’re always brainstorming ways to make “chicken for dinner” a little more awesome. The delicious twists this week: a coating of cinnamon paprika spice and a glossy currant jam pan sauce. Sweet and savory is the name of the game here, with the sides being no exception. Crispy roasted Brussels sprouts and creamy mashed sweet potatoes pair perfectly with the smoky-sweet chicken. Get ready for a flavor explosion.

Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Trim and halve Brussels sprouts. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper. Arrange cut sides down on one side of baking sheet. Roast until browned and tender, 20-25 minutes total.

Pat chicken dry with paper towels; season all over with salt, pepper, and ½ TBSP Cinnamon Paprika Spice (save the rest for another use). Heat a drizzle of oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned but not cooked through, 2-3 minutes per side. Turn off heat. Transfer to baking sheet with Brussels sprouts, pushing sprouts toward one side. Roast until cooked through, 5-7 minutes. (TIP: If chicken is done before Brussels sprouts, remove from sheet and return sprouts to oven.)
