Spiced Honey Lemon Chicken & Sweet Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

I realized the other day (with horror) that I have never made brussels sprouts. Maybe a carry-over from childhood rearing it’s ugly head in my adult life? I didn’t like them when I was little – really the only veggie I have no taste for – so I’ve never thought to make them for my family. Then I saw this recipe and was intrigued. Sprouts with caramelized onions and bacon? Well, that sounded absolutely divine. I had my dad over for dinner tonight (my mom is out-of-town visiting family) and made this perfectly paired meal. Oh so good. I had thirds of the brussels sprouts.  The chicken has a great depth of flavor and a spicy kick to it that will make you want to lick every last drop of sauce from your plate. Who knew onions could be so sweet and tangy? With the bright flavor of the sprouts and the moist savory chicken, this dinner was an out of the park success!
