Recipe Wednesday: Brown Sugar & Garlic Chicken

On Sundays, I'm home alone all day. Both my mom and sister are at work so I usually have the most relaxing day on planet earth and I cherish my Sundays with all my heart.

Because I'm home all day with Gossip Girl on Netflix and the only real responsibility of blogging to keep me busy, I sometimes experiment with recipes. I'll make myself a fancy, aggressive breakfast and I've just started cooking dinner for my family.

Well, last week I made a kick ass Loaded Cauliflower Soup in the Crock Pot but forgot to take photos so we'll wait on a blog post on that. That's what I originally had planned for today but then I also forgot that I made dinner Monday night too.

I was off last week for Columbus Day and decided to try my hand at another recipe and this was even more delicious and easier that the soup.

My mom wanted something healthy, while I wanted something flavorful and easy. That is how Garlic and Brown Sugar chicken was born.

It sounds kind of gross but my goodness it was tasty. It had a sweet, but not overpowering taste -- similar to what a teriyaki sauce tastes like.

And like I said, it was ridiculously easy.

Ingredients:

  • Chicken of your choice (I used thin sliced chicken breast cutlets) 
  • 4 TBSP of Brown Sugar
  • 2.5 TBSP of chopped garlic (I didn't have cloves but the original recipe calls for 4 cloves) 
  • 3 TSPs of Olive Oil






To Do:
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees 
  • Grease a baking pan (I used cooking spray -- nothing better!)
  • Pour the 3 tsps of olive oil in a heated sauce pan
  • Saute the garlic in the olive oil until it becomes soft 
  • Place chicken in greased baking dish and season with salt & pepper
  • Take the pan off the heat and combine brown sugar with garlic
  • Take a spoon or fork and spread the garlic & sugar mixture on both sides of the chicken
  • Bake for 40 minutes (I cooked them until the chicken cutlets were brown, crispy, and almost burnt)
Uhh, these were DELICIOUS and I will 100% be making this constantly this winter. How easy was that? I mean, only a few steps and ingredients you should have in your house. 

What is your go-to fall dinner dish?
