This is a quick and easy chicken dinner for those busy weeknights. It has great, sweet flavor from the brown sugar and is very kid-friendly!
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp. onion powder
Salt and pepper
2 Tbsp butter
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 tbsp brown sugar
1/3 C. chicken stock
2 Tbsp. Sherry
½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
Preheat oven to 450.
Season the chicken with onion powder, salt and pepper.
Heat a large fry pan over medium heat. Melt the butter in the pan and sauté the garlic in butter. Add the chicken breasts and sear on both sides.
Removing the chicken from heat, sprinkle it with a pinch of crushed red pepper.
Add the chicken stock and sherry to the pan and scrape up any brown bits. Stir in the brown sugar.
Place chicken in a prepared baking dish and cover with the sugar mixture. Bake for 15 minutes or until juices run clear and internal temperature reads 165.
That’s it! Yum!
