Due to the fact that it is a ridiculously easy meal, we have grilled chicken about once a week. But lately I have been bored with our usual marinade. I desperately needed to branch out and find something new, but I wanted to keep it an easy meal. So one day, about an hour before dinner, I did a quick google search for chicken recipes and found one for garlic chicken over at And you guys, it was AWESOME. I was amazed at how juicy and delish that chicken was. Especially for only using four ingredients!

So here is what you need:

First up you need four chicken breasts. I like boneless and skinless.

And yes, I realize this is only three, but they were big and it was all I had in the freezer this week. Just know the recipe is supposed to be for four!


Next you need three teaspoons of olive oil


Four cloves of garlic


And three tablespoons of brown sugar.


Mince the garlic and throw it in a pan with the olive oil. Saute until tender.


Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the brown sugar.


Now, line a baking pan with foil. I didn't do this the first time and I really regretted it. Burned chicken juice all over my pan takes forever to clean. Just in case you are wondering.


Place your chicken in the pan and cover with the brown sugar and garlic mixture.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Bake in an oven that has been preheated to 500 for 15-30 minutes. (It's closer to 25-30 minutes for me.)


And wala! Golden garlic-y goodness.


Serve it with mashed potatoes, white rice or, my personal favorite,The Pioneer Woman's baked macaroni and cheese.

Mmmm. I'm getting hungry.

Make this soon. It's yum. :)
