POP Nutrition | Caramelized Onions, Brussels Sprouts and Chicken Saute

Hi guys, IMG_1591

I only used Brussels sprouts in the past when roasting them with vegetable but today I dared to step out and and made this wonderful vitamin packed Caramelized Onions, Brussels Sprouts with Chicken Saute. I also added some avocado and its creaminess in contrast with sprout crunchiness really made this dish perfect. By the way an added bonus – Brussel sprouts lower cholesterol and are high in cancer-protective substances plus Vitamin C, folate and load of fiber.

Moreover, you know how chicken breast is really dry, well this time you do not have to choke and drink a bit of water while eating it. I like dark chicken meat and the breast well, the chicken only has two thighs unfortunately so I am usually left with white meat and have to get creative. I usually get two rotisserie chickens on the weekend to make sure I always have healthy protein options but this time I think I am just about to done with it but I had an idea. I ground the meat up and added it into the saute – tasty and high-protein while making the meal complete and well rounded for optimal lean muscle growth.
