Yield 6-8 servings


  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for baking dish
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 6 cups cooked wild rice
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with oil. In a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken to skillet and cook until golden and cooked through, 8 minutes per side. Let rest 10 minutes, then cut into 1-inch pieces.
  2. Heat remaining tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add onion, sweet potatoes, and Brussels sprouts and season with thyme, paprika, salt and pepper. Cook until softened, 5 minutes. Add broth, bring to a simmer, and cook, covered, 5 minutes.

  4. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
