While skimming my Pinterest board I had forgotten about Easy Garlic Chicken Recipe – Food.com , which I had made quiet some time ago. Mr.Picky didn’t get a chance to try it so I thought I would put to the test. It is one of easiest chicken recipes without sacrificing flavor.
We love anything garlic so what is not to love. I changed the recipe slightly, increasing the garlic and reducing the amount of chicken to what our family needs. The chicken breast I buy are verily large and 1/2 a chicken breast a person is more than enough. I also felt the need to rename the dish because it is more of a caramelized garlic flavor.
Caramelized Garlic Chicken:
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 4-5 cloves garlic,crushed or minced
- 2 Tbs brown sugar
- 1 Tbs olive oil
Prepare a baking pan that will fit the chicken by lining with tin foil and spraying well with cooking spray.
Place chicken breasts in pan and season with salt and pepper.
In a small skillet heat oil and garlic until fragrant, and then stir in sugar.
Spread sugar/garlic paste on top of each breast.
Bake uncovered at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until juices run clear.
