Step 1: Pan Frying the Chick'n

Pan Frying the Chick'n
  • 4 Gardein Chick’n Scallopini
  • 1 1/2 cups seasoned panko bread crumbs, ground
  • 1/4 cup oil for pan frying


To prepare the Chick’n, place the scallopini onto a piece of plastic wrap and then fold the other half over top. Very gently pound the Chick’n to thin it out slightly.

Coat the pieces of Chick’n in the breading, gently press the breading into the Chick’n and shake off any excess breading once done.

To cook the Chick’n, heat a large fry pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the oil immediately followed by the Chick’n.

Cook the scallopini for a few minutes, on each side, until a nice golden crust has formed. 
Allow the Chick’n to cook on the second side for another minute or so.

Remove the pieces and place them onto a cooling rack to rest, while you cook the Brussels sprouts.

Step 2: Cooking the Brussels Sprouts

Cooking the Brussels Sprouts
  • 3 cups Brussels sprouts leaves*
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Miso Sesame Sauce
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste


To cook the Brussels sprouts, heat a wok or large fry pan over high heat. Once hot, add the oil followed by the Brussels sprouts. Cook for a minute or two – the leaves should still be crunchy, so be sure you don’t over cook them.

*Note: For more information on how to prepare the Brussels Sprout leaves, see the full Brussels Sprouts recipe here.

Next, add the Miso Sesame Sauce and toss. Continue to cook for about a minute, just to heat the sauce through.

Finish the Brussels sprouts by seasoning to taste with salt and pepper. At this point, the sprouts should be served immediately to maintain their crispiness and vibrant color.

Step 3: Finishing the Dish

Finishing the Dish
  • 1/2 cup Miso-Sesame Sauce
  • 2 cups Mashed Potatoes, or roasted potatoes


To serve the dish, place the Chick’n onto a bed of Mashed Potatoes (or roasted potatoes). To serve the chick’n, either slice in two on a bias, or leave whole.

Gently place the Brussels sprouts on top and finish by drizzling a bit more of the Miso-Sesame Sauce around the plate and serve immediately.

    This was a fantastic recipe. I would advise against using a stainless steel pan, like they do in the video, as it stripped all the bread crumbs off. Also, I froze the remaining sauce!

    Hi- It seems like maybe the SS pan did not work so well for you. It may be that the pan was not hot enough or that the product was moved too much during cooking - but sometimes it just takes practice. There are a few variables that can cause the coating to fall off. Good luck next time, and with a nonstick pan if you wish. ~Ken

    I prepared this last night, and oh my, this is a wonderful recipe!! It takes a lot of coaxing for me to try Brussels Sprouts, but this was excellent. My husband loves the little sprouts, and he bought an over abundance of them...I got the hint. :-) Instead of using the Chick’n Scallopini , I used what I had on hand, the Gardein seven grain crispy tenders. This was a delicious, soul-warming meal.
