Chestnuts and Brussels sprouts are a classic pair—the toasty, rich nuts balance the sprouts. This dish cuts down on the holiday oven gridlock because it can be done on the stovetop.
2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium chicken broth
3/4 cup coarsely chopped chestnuts, (about 4 ounces; see Tip)
2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add Brussels sprouts and cook until bright green and just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain well.
Melt butter with oil and broth in a large skillet over medium heat. Add Brussels sprouts, chestnuts and sage and cook, stirring often, until heated through, 2 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
