Apple & Pear Glazed Chicken with Prosciutto Brussel Sprouts and Almond Yams

The herbs and spices in this Chicken recipe are so festive and are sure to bring some joy to your tastebuds! 

Apple & Pear Glazed Chicken  

2 Chicken Breasts 
olive oil
1 tablespoon butter 
2 pink lady apples
1 pear
1/4 cup honey 
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 lemon 
s & p

Cook chicken breasts in a cast iron pan till golden brown and remove from heat. 
Peel and slice apples & pears caramelize in cast iron pan, with butter, honey, cinnamon, cloves, garlic, lemon juice and salt & pepper.
Once apples and pears are a dark glaze colour throw the chicken breast back in and toss and warm up & serve.

I served with Prosciutto Brussel Sprouts & Yams.
For the Sprouts I simply put in a baking dish with olive oil and about 100 grams of prosciutto bits (from Oyama sasuage on Granville Island) and baked for 30 mins.
I just laid out the Yams on a cookie sheet, brushed with olive oil and sprinkeled with blanched slice almonds, viola! 
I would recommend having a good peeler in the kitchen, I used to have a pampered chef one but it grew leggs and went missing :( Good thing I had a little helper to do the peeling :)
