1 cup Kitchen Basics® Unsalted Chicken Stock
2 tsp McCormick Gourmet™ Herbes de Provence
1 cup butternut squash, peeled and chopped
2 cups Brussels sprouts, quartered
1/2 cup dried cranberries
3 slices bacon, chopped
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 tsp whole grain mustard
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup goat cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Bring stock and spices to a simmer in a medium skillet over medium-high heat; cook 2 minutes. Add squash, Brussels sprouts and cranberries and cook until almost tender, about 5 minutes. Pour mixture into a bowl and set aside.
In the same skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat about 2 minutes or just until cooked, but not crisp. Add shallots and continue cooking 2 minutes until tender and bacon is crispy. Whisk in mustard and vinegar; cook and stir 1 minute or until slightly thickened.
To serve, drizzle warm bacon vinaigrette over Brussels sprouts and top with crumbled goat cheese and pecans.
