instructions
Prepare & roast the brussels sprouts:
1 Prepare & roast the brussels sprouts:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven, then preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Line a sheet pan with foil. Cut off and discard the stem end of the brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Transfer to the prepared sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 9 to 11 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. 

Prepare the apple & make the dressing:
2 Prepare the apple & make the dressing:

While the brussels sprouts roast, core and medium dice the apple. In a bowl, combine the vinegar, honey (kneading the packet before opening), and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook the chicken & make the sauce:
3 Cook the chicken & make the sauce:

While the brussels sprouts continue to roast, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In a bowl, combine the tomato chutney and 1/4 cup of water. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes on the first side, or until browned. Flip and add the diced apple and tomato-water mixture (carefully, as the liquid may splatter). Loosely cover with foil and cook, without stirring, 6 to 7 minutes, or until the apples are softened and the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat. Leaving the apples and sauce in the pan, transfer the cooked chicken to a plate. Add the butter to the pan and stir until melted and combined.  

Cook the couscous:
4 Cook the couscous:

While the chicken cooks, in a small pot, combine the couscous, currants, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, turn off the heat. Cover and let stand 6 to 8 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the couscous is tender. Fluff with a fork.  

Finish the couscous & serve your dish:
5 Finish the couscous & serve your dish:

To the pot of cooked couscous, add the roasted brussels sprouts and dressing; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished couscous topped with the cooked chicken and apple and sauce. Top with the tzatziki. Enjoy!
