Baked Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken has become my favorite baked chicken recipe! I can't believe how simple this recipe is and that you only need 4 ingredients. I was able to have this chicken ready and on the table for dinner in 30 minutes. I don't know about you, but I love recipes like that especially on busy nights with my family.
For this recipe I uses chicken breasts that I cut into tender pieces. It helps doing this to cut down on cooking time and makes it easier to serve to my boys. For this Baked Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken recipe start by putting your chicken in a foil lined baking dish (makes for easy clean up with all the sticky mess from the brown sugar) and season with salt and pepper. Next saute the garlic in olive oil over medium heat in a small skillet. Once that is done add in the brown sugar. Spoon over the chicken and place in the oven. While the chicken is cooking cook your sides. I made rice to serve with our chicken.
Once the Baked Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken is done spoon some of the juice on top before serving. It makes it that more juicy and scrumptious. This recipe will be on my menu in the future! To make as a Freezer Meal - prepare the topping (garlic saute). Place chicken in a foil lined baking dish and add topping. Place foil on top and write directions - Bake for 25 minutes on 400 degrees. This will last in your freezer for 3 months.
