Autumn Chicken Skillet

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 12 ounces of brussel sprouts (1 bag), halved
  • 1 green apple
  • 1/2 of a small butternut squash
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 46 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp of sage
  • 1 tsp of rosemary
  • 1 tsp of thyme
  • 1/2 tsp of ginger
  • salt and pepper

For the marinade/gravy

  • 1 cup of apple cider
  • 2 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbs dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp of sage
  • 1 tsp of rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup of Sherry


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together 1 cup of apple cider, 2 tbs of balsamic vinegar, and 2 tbs dijon mustard. Cut up 2 chicken breasts into bite sized pieces. Season the chicken with 1 tsp rosemary, 1 tsp of sage, 1/2 tsp of ginger and salt and pepper. Put the chicken in the bowl with the cider mixture. Cover and let marinade while you prepare the veggies.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium to medium high heat with 2 tbs butter and 2 tbs olive oil. While the skillet is heating, chop the veggies and apples into bite sized pieces and halve the brussel sprouts. Add all the veggies to the skillet.
  3. Season the veggies with 4-6 cloves of pressed garlic, 1 tsp of sage, 1 tsp of rosemary, 1 tsp of thyme, 1/2 tsp of ginger, and salt and pepper. Pour in a 1/2 cup of sherry. Let cook for 5-7 minutes or until the veggies start to soften and sherry simmers.
  4. Take the chicken out of the marinade and let cook for 3-4 minutes per side. Pour the reserved marinade in. Bring the marinade to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and let simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Serve hot, garnishing with rosemary and sage.


* To save time, use a prepeeled butternut squash half from the grocery store.
** 12 ounces is 1 small bag of packaged brussel sprouts in the produce section
***Feel free to substitute chicken stock or white wine in the place of sherry.
