Without realizing, you may have already laid your peepers on this flavorful side as it is pictured here with my world’s best chicken recipe. So many of you asked for the how-to of these brussels! And I’m happy to indulge.
You’ll love this dish because it is versatile with many entrees AND the ingredients are available year-round, especially in winter (bonus!).
