  • Pour buttermilk in a bowl and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Take the chicken breasts and submerge the chicken in the buttermilk (this can be done the night before or several hours before if time permits).
  • In a food processor, pulse the cornbread stuffing so it resembles crumbs the size of a rice kernel. Place bread crumbs in a baking dish. Shake off excess buttermilk and dip chicken into cornbread mixture pressing it on so it adheres to the chicken. Place on a wire rack and let chicken sit for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • In a large skillet, heat oil. Heat for one minute on high and very carefully place chicken in hot oil. Cook for 2-3 minutes and then cook on a baking sheet with a wire rack for an additional 15 minutes in the oven or until internal temperature of chicken is at least 165°F.
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the jalapeno jelly and cranberry sauce and add a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Heat olive oil in a sauté pan for one minute and then add in onions and brussels sprouts. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 4-5 minute until onions are translucent and Brussels sprouts are soft.
  • Serve chicken with a spoonful of cranberry-jalapeno relish and sautéed Brussels sprouts.
