Mealthy Tip

Try other cruciferous veggies in place of the Brussels sprouts, like broccoli or cauliflower. Add some red pepper flakes to the chicken broth mixture for extra heat. Serve some rice, potatoes, or couscous alongside this dish for a complete meal. Pop open a bottle of your favorite red wine, and you've really got a nice evening!

I really love this recipe. I chopped the bacon into 2-inch pieces before searing in the pressure cooker. The texture and crispness of the bacon is perfect. I'm a seasoning guy, so when I saw that this recipe only calls for salt and pepper I was really tempted to add more spices. Glad I went against my normal routine and followed the recipe as is. It was so flavorful and did not require any extra touches. This also makes for a great meal prep/lunch idea.

I used turkey bacon and it didn't get as crisp as I would have liked, but it still worked out well in this recipe. I love the way all the flavors work together. I love only having to use a single pot instead of roasting the sprouts and cooking the bacon separate.

Love the quick and easy one-pot nature of this recipe. The chicken and bacon cooks together in under 10 minutes, which is fabulous. I actually added broccoli at the end instead of brussels sprouts. One of my favorite recipes, hands down.

Family loved the chicken thighs. My 3 year old devoured the Brussels sprouts and it was her first time eating them. I may add garlic powder to chicken next time. All in all we ate it all!

Excellent recipe. My husband says this is his new favorite dish. It was even better leftover.

This was delicious!!! And the first meal with chicken my 16 month old has eaten! Will definitely be making again. Two tips: choose bacon that doesn’t have much fat and high quality chicken thighs. 👌🏻

I had to do something with a really thin remaining sauce. I took out the chicken and sprouts left the liquid, mixed a 1/4 c of milk with 2 TBS of flour, set the pot on saute and whisked in the flour mix. Put the chicken back in and served.

I made this as described and it was scrumptious! It’s a must have if you love Brussels sprouts.

Was very juicy! Used cauliflower because it was on hand and it turned out great.

Used mixed vegetables instead of brussels sprouts. Would be really good over rice or pasta. Very good recipe.

This was a great dish! I added garlic & onion powder, increased the mustard and served it over spaghetti squash (also cooked in the instant pot- cut in half, remove seeds, cook on trivet with 1 c water for 7 minutes- Perfect!)- so good, everyone loved it!
