Chicken Molasses with Veggies

This is an easy casserole that I just threw together spur of the moment. I was looking at some of my cookbooks and I was not satisfied with the selection I saw, so I decided to just go and do my own thing. This recipe calls for molasses, which isn't used as frequently as it used to be in the old days. But it has a unique sweet taste and really jazzes up food. Serves 4.

4 Chicken Breasts, cut in half
3 tbsps molasses
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (more or less)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1 bell pepper, chopped, your choice of color
8 small red potatoes, cut in half
8 gourmet mushrooms, sliced
24 brussel sprouts

In a small bowl, mix up the molasses, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika. Spray an ovenproof dish with nonstick spray and lay your chicken breasts in it. Spoon the molasses mixture over it, making sure to cover both sides of the chicken. Arrange the mushrooms around the chicken. Put the bell pepper over the chicken. Arrange potatoes over over and around the mushrooms and put the brussel sprouts in the middle. Sprinkle the garlic and onion powder over everything.

Cover (or use foil) and put into a preheated to 375F oven. Bake for about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Just out of the oven!

About 8 points a serving. You can spoon the sauce over everything and it will lend a sweet, slightly spicy tang to everything! Enjoy, mateys!
