  • 2 lbs chicken leg quarters
  • 2 medium red onions
  • 1 apple
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons mustard
  • 1 (12 oz) bag Brussel sprouts, halved
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 3 green onions, sliced


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Season the chicken with salt (in moderation) and pepper. Peel the red onions and cut each into 8 wedges. Quarter and core the unpeeled apple and slice thinly, set aside.
2. Heat 4 tbsp oil in a large ovenproof pan. Sauté chicken over medium-high heat for 6 min., or until browned, turning once. Add the onions, mustard and 1⁄4 cup water and cook for 1 min. Cover the pan, place in the center of the oven and bake for 20 min. Add the apple slices and stir. Bake, covered, for a further 25 min. or until chicken, onions and apples are tender.
3. Cook the sprouts in boiling salted water about 8 min. or until al dente. Drain. Heat the remaining oil in a skillet and sauté the garlic and curry, 1 min. Add the Brussels sprouts and green onions and stir-fry for 2 min.
4. Remove the chicken from the oven and serve with the Brussel sprouts.
