So I actually wasn’t going to cook anything fancy or special today…I already had some baked chicken in the fridge. But I wasn’t feeling it (I will probably use it for salad tomorrow). I saw a recipe on pinterest (and boy do I see recipes on pinterest!) for baked garlic and brown sugar chicken. It is simple and tasty. It actually tastes like it belongs with some asian stir fry vegetables, so maybe I will think about this as a marinade for meat in an Asian inspired dish another time. Anyways… here is the link to the recipe and pictures follow… http://www.daydreamkitchen.com/2012/08/baked-garlic-brown-sugar-chicken/
Mince 4 cloves of garlic
Sautee garlic in about 3 tablespoons of oil ( I actually used grapeseed oil, yummy!) Then take off heat and stir in the brown sugar.
Put the chicken in a lightly greased dish and cover with the garlic sugar mixture.
Bake in oven (at 500, and I do mean 500 degrees!) for about 20 minutes (this is a little more dependent on how thick your chicken breast are).
Ta-da! (as one of my students would say) I put my chicken with some brown rice and it was sure tasty!
