He used a bone-in chicken breast with skin which gave it that nice crisp brown on the outside.  I simply used a boneless, skinless chicken breast because that was what I had on hand!

Chopped Challenge Thursday: Cinnamon, Oranges, Apples and Brussels Sprouts

Welcome to Chopped Challenge Thursday, Week Eleven!  I can’t believe it has been almost 3 months since I began this little portion of the blog!  It has been a blast and this week was especially fun because my 87-year-old grandma in Houston, Texas submitted an ingredient into the mix (with a little help from my Mom to post on Facebook)!

Check out Nana this summer with my Mom and I while showing off her backyard garden!

Nana submitted Cinnamon because she said that she heard it has a lot of health benefits! She’s one smart lady because cinnamon does pack a lot of health benefits including lowering bad cholesterol, relieving arthritis pain, stabilizing blood sugar and even eliminating migraine headaches!

The next three ingredients added into the mix were brussels sprouts from Allison Davis, apples from Wendi Garrison and oranges from Cynthia Mitchell.

I already had an Apple Sausage Gorgonzola Tart on my menu for the week so I decided to use the additional ingredients from “Mystery Basket Monday” to turn the Tart into this weeks Chopped Challenge Thursday!
