Yummy Pinterest - Garlic Chicken

Pinterest has become a new obsession for me!  I even found a way to add a Pin It button on my blog :)  I especially love the links to all the new recipes - here is one we tried this week and it was pretty yummy.  It is only 7 ingredients and takes 35 minutes from start to finish - which is always a plus in our house.   


Garlic Chicken

4 Servings

2-4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

4 Cloves of Garlic - Pressed or Minced

3 T Olive Oil

4 T Brown Sugar

Salt & Pepper

Cooking Spray

3 Cups Hot Steamed Rice

Directions:

1.  Preheat oven to 500°F

2.  Cover a casserole dish in foil and lightly spray with cooking spray (helps with clean up).

3.  Cut all fat from chicken and pound out to an even thickness.

4.  In small sauté pan, sauté garlic with the oil until tender about 4-5 minutes

5.  Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar.

6.  Place chicken breasts in a prepared baking dish and salt and pepper to taste.

7.  Cover with the garlic and brown sugar mixture.

8.  Bake uncovered for 18 minutes or until no longer pink in the center.

9.  Serve with hot steamed rice.

This would be great with a veggie on the side too but I just didn't have anything in the refridgerator tonight.
