Quick and easy to prepare, this delicious dish is a great way to introduce Brussels sprouts into the diet.
Brussels sprouts have many heath benefits, not the least of which is their abundance of vitamin antioxidants, such as vitamins C and beta-carotene, as well as the antioxidant mineral manganese. Brussels sprouts are also powerful anti-inflammatories, due to the presence of glucosinolates, vitamin K and Omega 3. The anti-inflammatory nature of this dish is further enhanced by the presence of turmeric.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Trim and quarter Brussels sprouts. Dice sweet potatoes. Peel and quarter shallots. Slice lemon into thin pinwheels. Stem rosemary and finely chop leaves. Peel and mince garlic.
Combine Brussels sprouts, sweet potato, shallots, lemon, 2 tablespoons oil, ¼ teaspoon pepper, ½ teaspoon salt and cumin in a large baking dish.
Mash garlic and the remaining ½ teaspoon salt with side of chef’s knife to form a paste. Combine with rosemary, turmeric, thyme, remaining ¼ teaspoon pepper and remaining 2 tablespoon oil. Rub paste over chicken. Nestle chicken in with Brussels sprouts and sweet potato.
Roast, lightly covered with foil, until done, about 20 minutes for bone-in, and 10-12 minutes for boneless.
Serve chicken with Brussels sprouts and sweet potato.
