This past November we hosted our first American Thanksgiving. Before that we had been lucky to be invited to various friend’s Thanksgiving dinners, and before that we were in Canada. Our dinner was a very chill affair with a few friends—not a stressful and pressure-filled multi-day cooking feat. It’s hard for me to get SUPER excited about traditional thanksgiving fare so I chose to liven our meal up with a Mexican fusion approach to the usual veggie sides and roast. Since we were a small group I roasted us a chicken instead of a turkey and glazed it with a simple chipotle and honey sauce. It turned out moist and delicious. My other favorite was the brussels sprouts tossed with a chile and peanut sauce. Anyway, why am I telling you all this? Well, I’ve been wanting to share that meal with you guys, but a simpler everyday version. So here’s a weekday meal inspired by our Thanksgiving using the ubiquitous boneless, skinless chicken breasts, a pile of brussels and a simple to whip together, chipotle-honey sauce.
