Garlic Chicken


If you are like me, you like to serve your family meals that are quick and easy to make, but with no compromise of taste.  If you are a working parent or have a very busy schedule you will like this recipe, and if you like "garlic" you will love this recipe. In about half an hour this meal is on the table.  It goes good with fried rice and fresh salad. This recipe is for 8 chicken breasts, but you can easily adapt it for more or less depending on what you need.  Use about 1 clove of garlic, 1 scant teaspoon oil and 1 tablespoon brown sugar (not packed down) per chicken breast piece. Who wants to spend hours in the kitchen, not me.... :-)


  • 8 chicken breast halves
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced 
  • 2 tablespoons oil (scant)
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar (lightly packed)
  • lots of freshly ground pepper 
  1. Saute the minced garlic in the oil until softened.
  2. Take off the heat and mix in the brown sugar and pepper.
  3. Spoon the brown sugar mixture evenly over each chicken breast.
  4. Place into a greased dish that holds the chicken without crowding.
  5. Bake at 475 for 25 minutes or is no longer pink inside.

  11. I have a question. I don't see anywhere on your recipes to allow to pin them to pintrest. Just wondering if you are considering for the future. I would love to get some of your recipes on my pinterest boards. Thank you.

  12. Made these while in Palm Springs on vacation. My friends tease me that I try new recipes on friends, but it's lot of fun. They were a big hit and literally took minutes to put together, which was great considering it was 40C and I didn't feel like cooking.

  13. Does this really bake at 475? It is to crisp up the outside? And anyone tried it at a lower temperature?

      Every oven temperature is different. Perhaps your oven is hotter than mine. It is to make the outside of the chicken brown up and not bake it for too long. It won't try up that way. You can always try it at a lower temperature and let us know how it works out for you. But this temperature works well on my oven. As a matter of fact we are having this for supper tonight.

    2. I made this last night and did bake it at 475. The garlic and brown sugar formed a nice crust and all 6 of us cleaned our plates. Thanks.

  14. This recipe didn't work out well for me as the brown sugar mixture slid off the chicken breast and into the bottom of the pan and burned. Maybe a lower temperature would work better. Your picture looks good though and obviously you didn't have this problem.
