Chop fresh garlic – it’s gotta be fresh for this recipe {I know, I know- I don’t like the smell of it on my hands for days either…. but it’s worth it for this one}.

chicken 3

In a small/medium pan add olive oil and sauté garlic on medium heat until tender. Be very careful with your stovetop setting-garlic can burn quickly!

chicken 4

Add brown sugar to the olive oil and garlic- stir until it makes a paste.

chicken 5

Place thawed chicken breasts in a 9×13 pan, cover with paste and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake uncovered at 400 for approximately 20 mins. I placed mine on a cookie sheet, but when I make this again, I’ll use a 9×13.

*I am a huge fan of smaller, organic chicken breasts. If your chicken is larger than shown below, make sure to pound it. This will help it cook evenly!

  1. MMMmm this looks so good! Thanks for another great recipe 😉 your sides look amazing but I thin I would add a fruit cup and some spring time asparagus; “dinner bell ringing” XO Sheila

  2. I love sweet and savory dishes – this looks delicious. I love your recipes, they really are very helpful. Thank you for sharing them!

  3. Hi-about to make this for dinner tonight and just noticed there are 2 different temperatures listed for cooking….says to preheat to 450 but then bake at 400. Thanks for the reply and the yummy recipe!

  4. I made this on Sunday and I loved it. I’ll use less garlic the next time, it didn’t affect the taste but I’m not a fan of the after effects of garlic.

  5. We made this tonight and it was so good! I still look back at your recipes for inspiration. 😍
