Oh how I love one pan (or pot) meals.
Less dishes, less fuss and so many tasty flavors all together makes them the perfect option for weeknight dinners. They are also a good way to stay on track with our New Year’s resolutions to eat healthier. There are about a million ways to make meat and veggies in one pan. What could be a healthier and more balanced than that?
Ok, maybe salad, but let’s be real, that’s not happening EVERY night.
They’re delicious AND currently in season, so I can get them at farmer’s market 🙂
We are overflowing with citrus from our trees, so I decided to use lemons for the acidic punch (I have a hard time making chicken without citrus.)
With brussel sprouts, balsamic, citrus, honey, and a smoky spice blend on our drumsticks. This dish will warm you up with all it’s roasted goodness!
This paprika/garlic spice mixture, or a variation of it, is my go to poultry seasoning. I just love what paprika does to the chicken flavor, and how it enhances the browning effect. I usually use smoked paprika.
I used shallots instead of onions for a more delicate flavor. There was already a lot of boldness going on in the dish, and I figured shallots might be a nice change from huge chunks of regular onion.
While it’s true that you don’t want to necessarily eat all the lemons, they look pretty on the plate, and they impart the BEST flavor to the brussel sprouts.
Taylor, not the biggest fan of the teensy cruciferous vegetables, told me last night that they were “The most flavorful brussel sprouts you’ve made” He wasn’t quite ready to say that he liked them, but he at least could acknowledge that they weren’t bland. 🙂

All right, I kept my chicken ramblings short and sweet so you could get to THE GIVEAWAY! $700 worth of Amazon goods (which pretty much means everything under the sun) could be yours!

Now, a few words about the giveaway.
It’s open to anyone 18 or older who is an official resident of the United States or Canada! Rafflecoptor is powering the giveaway, which will run until midnight on January 27th. This means you have 2 weeks to submit your entries. After the two weeks are over, Rafflecoptor will randomnly select a winner, and that winner will be notified by e-mail.
If you’ve never entered a Rafflecoptor giveaway before, you should know that you have options. You can submit one entry or dozens of entries. Each time you do one of the tasks, it counts as an entry.
The tasks are one of 3 things.
- Follow me or one of the other bloggers on a social media site.
- Subscribe to my e-mail list or one of the other bloggers’ e-mail lists.
- Comment on this blog post, or one of the posts from my fellow bloggers that includes the giveaway. (It has to be a giveaway post, not just any post.)
Now, simply following, subscribing, or commenting is not enough. You have to do the action, and then come back to the page and confirm that you followed by clicking the “I follow!” link. If you already follow me, that totally counts as an entry. Just be sure to click the “I follow”
For example, if you wanted to gain an entry by following me on Pinterest, you would click the link that says follow Lou Lou Biscuit on Pinterest. It would navigate you away from the page to my Pinterest profile, and then you can just click follow. It will prompt you to login to your own Pinterest account if you aren’t already logged in. Then you need to come back to this page and click “I follow!” underneath the Pinterest link. That would count as one entry.
To start the process, enter your name and e-mail (this is important so you can be contacted if you win), or you can log in with Facebook.
