    Chef mariajane's Note:

    If you've always thought that you dislike Brussels sprouts, you've probably never tried them in a combination like this. Mild chicken tames the strength of the sprouts while garlic, lemon juice, red-pepper flakes and Parmesan unite the two main ingredients and complement them both. Frozen Brussels sprouts are surprisingly good in this recipe, too, though not as fine as fresh.

      Fantastic recipe! I had some leftover grilled chicken so used that in place of sauteing the chicken breasts, and used fettuccine and spaghetti instead of the shells as that's what I had on hand. Beyond that followed the recipe just as written and would not change a thing. The sauce was light and tasty with a terrific combination of flavors. Thanks for sharing a keeper! Made for the Best of 2011 event, recommended by sofie-a-toast

      mmmm what a delicious way to cook brussels sprouts and turn it into a meal! I obmitted the chicken but otherwise made as directed. Very good, light but flavorful sauce. I'll definitely be making this one again and sharing with others! Thanks for the post :)

      This was really good. The Parmesan cheese makes it. I added some crispy bacon at the end and served with rice instead of noodles. Great way to eat brussel sprouts!
