I made this to go with our holiday dinner and it was outrageously good. Instead of orange juice and zest, I used the juice of one lemon thinned with some water and the lemon zest. I was out of walnuts so I substituted toasted sliced almonds. Everyone just raved about this. I will definitely make this again, using my substitutions.-25 Dec 2008


I love brussels sprouts and this is a great recipe! The orange complements the sprouts very well. I used some smoked alder wood salt while cooking, and sprinkled on some bleu cheese when finished. A bowl full was very filling and made a whole meal.-07 Jan 2007

We just had this for our side dish with dinner and it was FABULOUS. A few changes I made: Oven roasted them at 375 degrees with the walnut oil for 30 minutes/added juice of half an orange for final 10 minutes and finished with the zest of half an orange, kosher salt and fresh black pepper. We did not add any nuts and probably will not add them in the future -these were FABULOUS and both my husband and I think they were the best we have ever had! DELISH!!!-06 Jan 2010

  5. Heat the frying oil inside a wok. I added about a tsp of minced garlic for flavoring..
  6. Cook chicken for about 6 minutes per batch or until chicken turns slightly brown. I used a fork and placed chicken and batter in a spoon, then dropped in the oil. This way the chicken is well coated and separated from the other chicken pieces..
  7. Move the cooked chicken onto a plate lined with a paper towel to soak the excess oil..
  8. Repeat until all chicken is cooked. It is ok to save some chicken in the batter for the next day. Just keep cover and refrigerated..
  9. Now for the sauce (heh heh heeeehhh)……

  14. Stir in the vinegar and soy sauce. Continue stirring for about 30 seconds..
  15. Whisk in the water and corn starch..

  18. Add the cooked chicken and coat well..

  20. Brussel Sprouts quick and simple recipe, takes about 45 minutes in the oven at 375 degrees..
  21. Wash and cut Brussels sprouts in half. Place in a baking dish. I used a glass baking dish..
  22. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil over the Brussels sprouts, salt and pepper them. Not too much oil, will defeat the purpose of a healthy dish..
  23. Mix the Brussels sprouts inside the baking dish and pop in the oven to bake uncovered..
  24. After I placed the chicken in the fridge, I prepped the Brussels sprouts and placed in the oven. This way everything is done at the same time..
  25. Serve the orange chicken over the Brussels sprouts..
  26. Or you can serve the orange chicken with your preference. Enjoy :).

The special thing about this brussels sprouts recipe is the way the chicken stock and butter come together to form this glossy little sauce that coats every nook and cranny on these gems. You get the feeling that they were tossed in a light cream sauce, even though the only hint of dairy is the smallest. How To Make Asian Chicken and Brussels Sprouts. We started out with chicken thighs, you could use chicken breast too but the thighs made it taste more like Chinese food to us. Brussels sprouts are so misunderstood: They've long been cast aside as a lame bitter vegetable hated by kids and adults alike.

Make the pad thai caramel: In a small saucepan, combine the brown sugar and ½ cup water and stir over medium-low heat until the sauce becomes as thick as caramel and develops a deep amber color, about 15 minutes.

Remove from the heat and let it cool slightly, then stir in the salt, white pepper, garlic, cilantro stems, fish sauce, and lime juice. Return the mixture to low heat and warm through, stirring until a smooth sauce forms, about 4 minutes. Remove the pad thai caramel from the heat and set aside.

Toss the Brussels sprouts with the oil and arrange them on a sheet pan cut side down. Roast, stirring every 10 minutes or so, until the sprouts are tender, golden brown, and charred in spots, 25–30 minutes.

Remove the Brussels sprouts from the oven and transfer to a large bowl. While they’re still hot, add the pad thai caramel and toss to combine. When the glazed sprouts have cooled slightly, add the bean sprouts, scallions, peanuts, and chile powder, then toss once more. Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with cilantro leaves. Serve with lime wedges.

Healthy and Easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are so good for you. They are full of fiber, antioxidants, essential vitamins, and minerals.

Until a few years ago, the health benefits of Brussels sprouts didn&rsquot matter to me at all. I grew up hating Brussels sprouts. My mother would boil them to death. Even though I eat just about every vegetable there is, up until a few years ago I.WOULD. NOT. go near Brussels sprouts.

The memories of the smell as they were boiling away along with the texture of the mushy little cabbage balls was too much for me to get over. It didn&rsquot matter how much butter my mother put on them &ndash yuk!

And then it all changed when I had a taste of roasted Brussels sprouts.

Roasting vegetables mellows out the flavor, which is what Brussels sprouts need. When they are roasted, Brussels sprouts taste nothing like boiled. They are not bitter at all, instead they are nutty and savory.

Roasting is an easy and hands-off way to prepare vegetables. We like our Brussels sprouts plain with a drizzle of olive oil, tossed with apples in these balsamic roasted Brussels sprouts with garlic or with pomegranate in these Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate.

Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts

May yesterday go down in history as the day that I spent twenty-five dollars on Brussels sprouts. I didn’t mean to do it! I knew I needed plenty of sprouts in case I encountered another recipe failure. The sprouts were packed in big bags, so I grabbed two and continued on to the green onions. That’s how they get you—with those big, pre-packed bags.

Then, I was a terrible customer and read email during check-out and didn’t even notice until I glanced at the receipt at home. Twenty-five hard-earned dollars! Who am I? The sprouts weren’t even good sprouts. I’ve been robbed.

My only consolation is that my sprouts turned out great on my next try, so I have extra sprouts for later. This Kung Pao Brussels sprouts dish is my take on a popular Chinese stir-fry recipe, Kung Pao chicken. I roasted my Brussels sprouts and tossed them in a completely irresistible, spicy soy-honey glaze with green onions and peanuts. It’s a stellar vegetarian appetizer or side dish, and I wouldn’t judge if you wanted to eat it for dinner on its own.

This recipe has actually been ten months in the making. I became completely enamored with the concept when I found it in the pages of Bon Appetit’s February issue, but when I cooked their version in our Austin kitchen, I was disappointed. It was crazy salty and just generally not awesome (sorry, Bon Appetit!). I gave it a couple more shots and eventually gave up.

Fast forward to December and I’m craving more roasted Brussels sprouts. I remembered the Kung Pao sprouts and wondered if I couldn’t come up with a similar, less salty and way more tasty version, based on my roasted Brussels sprouts with crispy baked tofu dish. It’s one of my favorite recipes, so I played around with it and here we are.

My version is, admittedly, pretty far from traditional Kung Pao chicken. I roasted the sprouts instead of stir frying them (too many sprouts for one pan) and omitted the Sichuan peppercorns (where do you find those?). It is awesome, though!
