Brown Sugar and Garlic Chicken
This is a yummy and VERY easy dinner. It only has four ingredients and you can prepare it in just a few minutes, then prepare the rest of the dinner while it bakes. It's delicious with mashed potatoes or rice.
Baked Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or equivalent in chicken tenders)
4 cloves garlic, minced or crushed (I use the kind in a jar)
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 Tablespoon (or so) olive oil.
Heat your oven to 500. Spray a 9x9 casserole dish. Place the four chicken breasts in the pan. In a small pan, heat the oil and add and saute the garlic. Remove from the heat and stir in the brown sugar. Cover the chicken with the garlic/brown sugar mixture. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake uncovered for about 20 minutes (may need 30 or more if the breasts are thick).
