Combining apples and Brussels Sprouts is simply the right thing to do. Even better, if you’re looking for the easiest dinner imaginable (short of takeout), just add chicken, throw it all together and make this a delicious and easy sheet pan dinner that will have your whole family asking for seconds. Yes — I’m telling you that your family is going to go nuts for these Brussels Sprouts. I wouldn’t lie to you!
I love sheet pan recipes. They exist solely to make our lives easier! It’s so nice to have a weeknight meal that’s not only easy to cook, but even easier to clean! The benefits of sheet pan dinners are practically endless.
There are so many one-pan dinner options on Pinterest, but I had this combination idea and wanted to branch out and try something on my own. I was really inspired by some Brussels Sprouts we ordered at a fancy steak house recently. They served them with diced apples, which was unexpected but so perfect. Clearly I’m obsessed with this combination, now!
I wasn’t quite sure how this would turn out, but my husband, a self-proclaimed Brussels hater, scarfed down this meal. As in, No. Leftovers. At. All.
Do you have a go-to sheet pan meal? I want to add more into my rotation, so share your favorites, please!

This dish was amazingly delicious and SO easy to make. It’s the perfect meal for a family on the go. My husband made this and he does NOT cook. To be clear, he has to google how to cut an onion. That is how much he doesn’t cook. This recipe came out perfectly and he also ate all his veggies. Did I mention he also eats like a toddler? Eating his veggies his a big deal around our house. We will definitely put this on our weekly rotation!
