Marinated Grilled Chicken w/ Brussels, Bacon & Onions

Marinated Grilled Chicken w/ Brussels, Bacon & Onions

This evening was another not-too-hot and not-too-humid evening. Another perfect night to grill dinner. I marinated boneless chicken breasts that I pounded to less than 1/2" thick to even out their thickness and then marinated them for a couple of hours in a delicious new dressing/marinade that I purchased at The Fresh Market. It was a Cracked Black Pepper Dressing/Marinade made by Tessemae's and it was delicious. I added a pinch of sea salt and crushed a teaspoon of dried rosemary and placed everything in a large Ziploc bag for 2 hours. I grilled it for about 5 to 6 minutes per side over a hot grill (about 400 degrees F). 

I quartered, halved and trimmed a 2-pound bag of Green Giant fresh brussels sprouts that I picked up at Costco and prepared them with bacon and Vidalia onions on the stove top and browned everything in a bit of butter so they would be just like roasted sprouts without heating up the kitchen with a hot oven. I used my nonstick wok and they turned out great! I prefer using my wok to a skillet because of its depth, and there isn't any splattering on my stove. I included the easy peasy recipe for my Brussels, Bacon & Onions below as well as a few photos. Enjoy!

  • 2 pounds of fresh brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved or quartered
