Butter-Basted Chicken Breasts
with Candied Bacon Brussels Sprouts and Mashed Potatoes
Your average chicken breast is amped up with a rich pan sauce and flavorful sides like sweet potatoes and candied bacon brussels sprouts. The “candied” here refers to brown sugar that is added to the brussels and bacon and then baked in the oven to form a gorgeous caramelized layer. The dish is finished with a silky, flavor-packed pan sauce, made from garlic butter, our rich demi-glace and tangy sour cream. Served with velvety sweet potatoes to bring it all together, this decadent meal is one for the books.

• Place a foil-lined baking sheet inside your oven (2 foil-lined sheets for 4 servings); preheat to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. • Trim and halve Brussels sprouts. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Peel and mince shallot until you have 3 TBSP.
