chicken apple goodness

I tried a new dish for the first time last night - chicken skillet with brussels sprouts, summer squash, apples, and a few other flavorful ingredients which make it the perfect blend of sweet and savory. I found a similar recipe on Pinterest and changed it up a little bit so it'd be healthier. This version is a low-carb dish that also fits into the paleo diet, if that's up your alley. The dish makes great leftovers too!


  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped

  • 3 cups brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered (about 3/4 pound)

  • 1 cup summer squash cut into 1/2 inch cubes

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 2 Granny Smith apples
