Try oven roasting the BS at a very high temp, it creates a sweeter taste than the boiled ones our moms served.

That is probably the reason I had nothing to do with them when I was a kid. Now I halve them, saute, then steam in a little broth. They do not resemble the ones mom used to try to get me to eat But my tastes have changed anyway.

Thanks for the tip Bea. The chicken cooks at 400° so I was going to prepare the sprouts with a bit of oil salt and pepper and bake them at the same time as the chicken. Hope they come out!

I was on the road a lot today running errands, etc. so I put a chicken in the crock-pot. I stuffed the cavity with onions, garlic and fresh rosemary. I also slid some rosemary sprigs under the skin of the breast. Added a smidge of white wine and let 'er go all day on low. We had mashed potatoes, freezer corn from last years silver queen corn, gravy, sliced fresh tomatoes, iced tea and more of last night's rice pudding. Oh, boy, are we full, but there's tons of chicken left for another time. Yeah!
