This garlic brown sugar chicken is insanely delicious. It’s juicy, the flavors are beyond imagination, and it is pretty easy to make. You only need a few simple ingredients; brown sugar, chicken breasts, garlic, butter, and pepper. The chicken is a bit sweet with a hint of spice. It’s like the flavors blend perfectly. You can serve this with any carb, veggie, or salad. But I normally serve this over rice with some carrots or green beans. And it is great with noodles, too. This recipe makes four servings. But I will not settle for that, I make extra because we all love chicken!
This is not your usual baked chicken recipe. Although, I must admit that I am not a fan of baked chicken because they tend to be dry. So this is a perfect alternative for me. And I love how the chicken breasts are cooked. Perfectly tender, juicy, and the skin turned out crispy. Plus, it has a mouthwatering sauce that will keep you coming back for more!
