Blistered Brussels Sprouts

Its no secret that I love to cook… so I wanted to share one of my favourite meals to cook for friends and family. Blistered brussels sprouts. Now I know that many of you have only ever tried the bland and boring version of these tasty little treats – but Im making it my mission to change that.

I’m a huge fan of trying new things at restaurants and then recreating them with my own twist.

This is my take on blistered brussels sprouts, pan seared chicken,  and a lemon balsamic vinaigrette.


I  took a simplistic approach when I seasoned the chicken breast. Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Salt.


Pan sear the chicken breast on medium to high heat with EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)


As the chicken breast cooks I add some diced peppered bacon strips. This helps Flavor the chicken and oil that you’ll later cook the brussels sprouts in. After the chicken and bacon is cooked fully – remove from heat and let cool.

I cut my brussels sprouts in half and then steam them for 10-12 mins. After draining throw them into the same pan that you cooked the chicken and bacon. I like to use the left over bacon grease for extra flavor.


Dont stir too much. You want to let the brussels sprouts blacken (Blister).


I chose to pair the blistered brussels sprouts with a lemon balsamic vinaigrette to help cut down on the fat from the bacon.

Lemon Balsamic Vinaigrette:

  • 3 Lemons
  • Honey
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste





And that it! super simple dish. I like to serve with pan seared chicken to make it a main dish – however, just the brussels sprouts make a great hors d’oeuvre.

Give this dish a try and let me know how you like it!  It’s absolutely one of my favorites.
