Sweet Garlic Chicken


You just have to love a recipe that is versatile enough for a nice dinner with friends, yet easy enough for busy week-night meals – it’s like winning the recipe jackpot!  This Sweet Garlic Chicken is definitely a winner.

I’ve seen this recipe making the rounds on Pinterest for some time and thought it looked yummy.  Then a friend emailed me and said you have to try it.  So I did and now I’m sharing it with you – you have to try it.  The combination of brown sugar and garlic is divine.  Since garlic is the main attraction, I do recommend that you use the real deal and peel your own rather than the mince garlic in a jar {which comes in very hand at times}.  I added a little rosemary and oregano and the results are delicious!


Sweet Garlic Chicken Recipe


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon rosemary
pinch of oregano
fresh ground salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 450°F   Line a baking dish or cookie sheet with aluminum foil and lightly coat with cooking spray or lightly brush with oil.

In small sauté pan, sauté garlic with the oil until tender.

Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar, rosemary and oregano.

Place chicken breasts in a prepared baking dish and cover with the garlic and brown sugar mixture.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

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

  1. I can’t wait to make this. Love garlic!

  2. Oh yum!

  3. Looks delish! Boneless chicken breasts are on sale this week in my neck of the woods, so this looks like dinner to me. Thanks!

  4. This looks so good. My husband is allergic to rosemary. Is there another herb you could suggest as a substitute? Thanks!

  5. Sure Natalie – I would substitute a little thyme, or you could just leave out the rosemary and not replace it. Let me know how you like it!
