*Brussels sprouts: It generally takes about 1 1/2 pounds of untrimmed Brussels sprouts to yield 1 pound of Brussels sprouts shaved.

*To cook the chicken: Pound chicken to an even thickness (about 1-inch) and season liberally with salt & pepper. Heat a large skillet to medium-high and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. When the oil is heated, cook chicken for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches 165˚F.  Remove from heat and let the chicken rest for about 5 minutes before slicing.
