    I made it with just the chicken broth. Before my children tried it, they asked for cheese or bacon, or something else to go on top. After they tried it (as is) they were fighting over the Brussels Sprouts! Very easy to prepare, quick and easy side dish.

    My family & I liked this side dish. I didn't have white wine, so I only used chicken broth, along with the other ingredients. I plan to try again sometime, with the white wine. I'm happy to have this easy, tasty recipe. Brussel Sprouts are so good for us.

    Easy and delicious! My husband loves this recipe. I don't really like brussel sprouts and I thought they were good!
