Ingredients

    1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2" cubes
    1 tablespoon coconut oil
    1/2 cup Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
    1 med sweet potato, peeled & cut into 1/2" cubes
    1/3 cup dried cranberries
    2 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, & cut into 3/4" cubes
    4 cloves garlic, sliced
    1 tsp chopped fresh thyme or 1/4 tsp dried
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
    1/2 cup water

Directions

SEASON chicken lightly with salt. Heat coconut oil in large nonstick frying pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer to plate.

Return pan to and add Brussels sprouts, sweet potato, and cranberries. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in apples, garlic, thyme, and cinnamon. Cook 3 minutes. Pour in 1/2 cup of the broth, bring to a boil, and cook until evaporated, about 2 minutes. Add reserved chicken and 1/2 cup water. Season with the salt and black pepper as needed. Cook until hot, about 2 minutes.
