Thai Glazed Chicken & Brussels

Hello everyone!! It's been a while, hasn't it? If you followed along on Instagram, you saw all the fun I had in Thailand. If not don't worry, I will be recapping the trip on the blog in the next couple weeks! 

Since i've been back, i've had some major withdrawals from all the delicious Thai food that I had while I was away. To help satisfy my cravings, I made this absolutely delicious Thai chicken and brussels bowl. It is definitely one of my new favorite dishes that I plan to make on the reg. Try it out and let me know what you think!

What You Need
For The Sauce
1/2 cup water
4 TBS honey
4 TBS coconut aminos

2. Set 1/2 cup of sauce aside for marinade (see below) and pour remaining sauce into a medium sauce pan over medium/high heat.

For The Chicken
1. Place chicken breasts into a bag with 1/2 cup of marinade. Let sit for at least 30 minutes in the fridge, but best if left overnight.

3. Cook for 8-10 minutes on each side or until no longer pink.

For The Brussels
1. Preheat oven to 400°.
2. Spread brussel sprouts onto a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
3. Cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until crispy. If needed, turn broiler on and cook for 3-5 minutes for extra crispness.
