It’s always good to have a couple quick and easy recipes up your sleeve. The kind of recipes that it is likely that you have all the ingredients on hand and the kind of recipes that likely please everyone. In my opinion, this is one of those recipes. It has chicken breast, brown sugar, garlic, and then any array of spices that are speaking to you that evening. Simple, quick, and delicious. Consider Cajun seasoning for a sweet and spicy combination, thyme or rosemary for something more earthy, or simple grill seasoning to add some peppery goodness. Squeeze some lemon juice on top before serving if it suits you or just stick to garlic and brown sugar. Virtually any combination works and the sweet caramel brown sugar makes it a crowd pleaser.

1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Arrange the chicken breasts in a prepared glass baking dish. Season with salt and pepper (adjust if your spices contain salt and pepper.)

2

Heat the oil in a small saute pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes until fragrant and tender. Remove from heat and add to a small bowl. Alternatively you can microwave the garlic and oil for 2 minutes to soften the garlic.

3

Stir in the brown sugar and any spices you are using. Pour over chicken.

4

Bake for 30-35 minutes until chicken is just cooked through.

5

Turn up the oven to broil. Broil for 3-5 minutes until sugar caramelizes on top. Serve with fresh squeezed lemon.
