Sautéed garlic gives this sweet chicken a slightly nutty flavor. It’s quick to prepare and makes a delicious weeknight meal. Be careful not to sauté the garlic for too long or on too high of heat.
Sweet Garlic Chicken
- 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, flattened
- 6 tsp garlic, 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.
