Maple Mustard Chicken Skillet
Maple mustard chicken skillet comes together in one pan, takes only 35 minutes with just 10 ingredients, and is loaded with protein and veggies. Tossed in a sweet & spicy maple mustard sauce for a healthy chicken skillet recipe. Gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo.
- 2 tablespoons oil, divided
- 1 pound chicken breast (cut into 1-inch pieces)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 pound sweet potatoes, diced (about 2 small/4 cups diced)
- 1 cup diced onion (130 grams)
- 1 pound brussel sprouts, shredded (about 6 cups)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard (I like to use grainy)
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- salt and pepper, to taste
- optional toppings: green onion, parsley, red pepper flakes
If needed, shred your brussel sprouts. Add the large shredding attachment to your food processor and run them through it. You will only be able to add a handful at once, but it only takes a couple of seconds to shred. Repeat will all your brussels.
Make your maple mustard sauce. In a small bowl or jar, mix together maple syrup, mustard, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper. Adjust according to taste if needed.
Heat a large nonstick pan (it needs to be large) over medium heat with a tablespoon of oil. Add chicken, garlic powder, and salt and pepper and cook for 5-7 minutes until browned on the outside and almost cooked through. It's okay if it's not all the way cooked, as it will go back in the pan later. Remove from the pan, leaving the juices behind.
Next, add the remaining oil to your pan. Then add sweet potatoes and onions and cook for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. If needed, cover with a lid to help speed up the process, but you don’t want them to steam too much. Next, add the brussel sprouts cook for another 5-7 minutes.
Add chicken and juices back to the pan. Finally, stir in the maple mustard sauce and mix well to combine. Let warm through and add lemon juice to add a pop of freshness. Enjoy!
