Orange Glazed Chicken with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potatoes

This orange-glazed chicken was good but not great. The veggies and orange sauce had great flavor, but the chicken was just okay.

Summary

From EWWW to YUMMM

I have only had brussels sprouts twice. The first time, I thought they were pretty good, but the second time, I made a face that showed my disgust. It smelled and tasted like cooked cabbage, so ewwww! I was willing to give this meal kit a try, even though it had brussels sprouts, and I’m glad I did, because now I know that roasting them till a little crispy makes all the difference. They didn’t have that pungent odor, and the flavor changed considerably. They no longer tasted (or smelled) like little cabbage. I enjoyed them roasted this way.

Of course, I love roasted sweet potatoes as I’ve mentioned here many times, so that was great as always.

Dark Over White Any Day

Neither Gail nor I are “white meat” kind of gals, so the chicken would have been better for us if it had been thighs rather than breasts. But the orange sauce helped amp up the flavor of the chicken somewhat, so it was better that way. If I ever make this on my own, though, I’ll definitely go with dark meat, and I think the ranking for this dish would go up at least another half point if not another whole point.

Easy Enough

The prep work was pretty easy. Normally, I dread dicing sweet potatoes, but these were smaller and more tender, so the chopping process wasn’t too difficult. It was a pretty basic process, so I could do this one on my own without having to follow the recipe in the future.
