Easy Garlic Chicken Recipe

Tonight was one of those nights where I did not want to do anything. I just wanted to hang out and eat food. Problem is I hadn’t been grocery shopping in over a week due to traveling. I was trying to figure out what I could make with the ingredients I already had. I had found this recipe on Pinterest over a year ago and I decided to make it again with my little tweeks.

To make this you need:

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 T minced garlic
  • 4 T brown sugar
  • 1 T olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

This is honestly one of the easiest recipes to make ever! Start off by preheating the oven to 425 degrees. I have make this before at 450 and while it cooks faster it tends to dry it out too.

Once the oven temperature has been set sautee the garlic and the olive oil in a small sauce pan.


When the garlic starts to brown you can then add in the brown sugar. The mixture will be very thick but the longer it is on the heat the more it will melt down. You may need to add more olive oil if it turns into a mound of moosh. It should look something like this.


I know that doesn’t look very appetizing but wait till you have it on top on the chicken. It is to die for! It should only take around 2 minutes to get the right consistency.

Line a cookie sheet with tin foil. You are not going to want that mixture on your cookie sheet. It will be a pain to get off. Layer the mixture over top your chicken breast and then cook it for 18 minutes. Some of the mixture may burn while it spills over the pan but it is delicious!


I served it with some Rice a Roni I found in the cupboard. I think it would be great with some salad or broccoli! What would you have done differently?
