Garlic Chicken

Being Italian I incorporate garlic into most (okay, all) of my recipes and this Garlic Chicken recipe is one of my favorites.  The garlic taste isn’t too overwhelming and the added spices create a flavor and aroma that is difficult to resist.  Besides that, this recipe has the three most important qualities that any recipe can have, it’s simple, easy and delicious.  Need I say more, really?

If you’re schedule is as crazy as mine and you still want to feed your family good, healthy food, give this recipe a try and then tell me if your family likes it as much as mine.  I really do want to hear what you think!

Garlic Chicken

4  chicken breasts, boneless skinless (can substitute for bone-in, skin-on pieces of your choice)

4 garlic cloves, crushed

4 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp Italian seasoning (optional)

1 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper



Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Line a baking dish or baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non stick cooking spray.

In small sauté pan on medium heat, cook garlic and oil, 1-2 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar and Italian seasoning, if using.

Season chicken with salt and pepper.  Place breasts in baking dish and cover with the garlic and brown sugar mixture.

Bake uncovered for 15-30 minutes, or until juices run clear. Cooking time will depend on the size and thickness of your chicken.
