This and the harvest chicken casserole are my top two, the taste is just unique and never thought I'd like it until I tried it.

Not sure about the description because I've always loved brussels sprouts even as a kid!

I hate mustard so I replaced it with horseradish instead cause I prefer the taste.

Really can't judge a recipe by it's ingridents, I didn't think even for a second that all this stuff would blend well together which is exactly why I had to try it out. I'm glad I did for sure, this is a 5 star dish!!

Can't get enough of this chicken salad it's sooo good and the bacon is an amazing touch.

I squirted some lemon juice over mine to give it a more zesty/ tangy flavor and I have no regrets it really made things tastier.

Completey agree that brussels sprouts is an acquired taste kinda veggie haha, loved it with the chicken and bacon though for sure, everything tasted good.

So I actually cheated the recipe by not adding the brussel sprouts instead I just made the chicken and everything else with some fried vegetables and mashed potatoes.

Katerina Vandenlangenber

Such a good recipe I'm excited to make this for my moms birthday tomorrow, hopefully she will love it as much as I did.

Chicken turned out very dry the first time I tried making it sadly but was better the 2nd time.
