Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken

You worked all day, you come home (in the dark, thanks to daylight savings time!) and the last thing you want to do is stand in the kitchen and cook an elaborate meal. You need tasty food, on the table quickly, using stuff you have on hand. This recipe delivers.

Brown Sugar.

What could go wrong?

The brown sugar carmalizes on the chicken and creates this deliciously sweet/salty chicken that would go with just about any veggie you throw together. And it's just four ingredients! FOUR!

This will definitely go into our we'rehungrywhatcanwethrowtogetherfast file - and I hope it goes into yours, too!


Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken
4 chicken breasts
4 tablespoons butter
4 cloves garlic, sliced
4 tablespoons brown sugar
salt and pepper, to taste
Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken breasts and set aside.

In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes, or until fragrant and the butter/garlic is starting to brown just slightly.

Add chicken, cover pan, and cook for 12 minutes. Flip chicken and continue cooking until the chicken is cooked throughly (or has reached an internal temp of 165°F).

Sprinkle the tops of each chicken breast with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. Cover pan with lid once more and let the brown sugar melt, about 1-2 minutes. Serve immediately.

Psst - have you entered to win a 12 inch Lodge Logic Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet yet? It's my favorite kitchen item and you need one, too! Drawing ends Friday at midnight - don't miss out!


  1. I burned the sugar a little bit but other than that it was really good! Mixed it with some carrots and rice :)

  2. I will be trying this for dinner tonight.
