This quick and easy chicken dish can be made in one pan, minimizing mess. Its simple flavors go well with steamed or sauted green vegetables and a side of pasta or rice.
Sweet Garlic Chicken
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 6 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
Preheat oven to 500°F. While oven preheats, heat oil in a large oven-safe sauté pan. Cook garlic in oil until garlic is tender then remove from heat. Stir in brown sugar. Push mixture to the side of the pan and lay chicken breasts in pan. Spoon brown sugar and garlic mixture over chicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until meat is thoroughly cooked. Check frequently after the first 10 minutes as the brown sugar mixture is prone to burning if cooked too long.
