Roast the vegetables
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Remove the bottom inch of the broccoli stem; peel the stem. Cut the head into long, thin florets, including the stem. Halve the Brussels sprouts (quarter if large). On a lined sheet pan, toss with a drizzle of oil, ½ the spices and S&P. Roast, stirring halfway, 14 to 16 min., until golden brown and tender.

Cook the chicken
Meanwhile, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Make the sauce
Heat the same pan on medium. Add 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp water (double both for 4 portions) and the pesto. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 sec. to 1 min., until heated through.
