  1. Heat oven to 500F (260C) degrees. Steam brussels sprouts for ~8 minutes. 

  2. Uncover sheet pan and toss with first part of Asian marinade and roast for 10 to 14 minutes, until outer leaves are golden and crisp. When brussels sprouts are done roasting, toss with second part of Asian marinade, lemon juice, and cilantro fresh out of the oven. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

  3. While veggies are roasting, heat up a skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then chicken breasts to heated oil with the marinade. Sear on both sides until golden, ~3 minutes each. 

  4. Lower heat and pour in chicken stock. Cover and cook for another 2 to 4 minutes, until chicken has reached 165F (74C) degrees. Remove chicken from pan, and slice after it’s rested for ~5 minutes. 

  5. Simmer remaining liquid in the pan until it’s reduced to half. Squeeze in lemon juice and then pour it over sliced chicken. Enjoy with brussels sprouts on the side.
