Caramelized Garlic Chicken

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

This is from the Pillsbury Chicken cookbook. It's super quick and has only a couple ingredients that we almost always have on hand. It has a sweet taste, but not overly so.


  1. Heat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. Line shallow roasting pan with foil; spray with cooking spray.
  3. In small skillet, combine garlic and oil; cook and stir over medium low heat until garlic softens.
  4. Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar, mix well.
  5. Place chicken in foil lined pan; spread garlic mixture evenly over chicken.
  6. Bake at 500 for 10-15 minutes, or until chicken is fork tender and juices run clear.

What a simple, simply fabulous recipe! I used brown sugar twin and cut back 1 tsp. The chicken was not too sweet but instead had a mellow flavor and that garlic is heavenly. I pounded the breasts so they were an even 1/4" added salt & pepper, poured the sauted oil, sugar & garlic on top, placed a piece of foil lightly over the chicken , removed the foil after7 minutes, flipped the breasts and finished cooking (almost 20 min) they were golden and juicvy, thanks Sharri35 for an easy recipe that was enjoyed by all

I used to make this all the time when I was on the Atkins diet and I'm glad that I found it on Zaar! I LOVE garlic and this really tastes amazing with the caramelized brown sugar. I will say that it's not for the faint of heart. If you are not a fan of garlicky foods, DO NOT make this recipe! For the rest of us, it's a winner!

SUPER easy recipe! I'm in college and don't have a lot of time to cook for myself, so this is usually my go-to recipe since it doesn't take long at all. I usually cut the recipe in half, making only 2 pieces of chicken for myself and my roommate, and serve with instant potatoes.
