This is the best chicken I have ever made or eaten in my life. It is the perfect combination of sweet and savory, and is great for a quick, yet still fancy, meal.

This was fantastic! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the cooking time wasn't long enough for the chicken to cook through and I had to microwave it. Also, don't add the garlic so early it burns up. The flavor though.... mmmmm good!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle the salt and pepper onto the chicken.
  2. In a medium to large sized skillet (I like cast iron) heat the oil over medium-high heat until almost smoking.
  3. Add the chicken breasts and garlic to the pan and brown the first side of chicken, about 5 minutes.
  4. Flip the chicken and brown the other side, about 3 minutes.
  5. Remove the chicken from the pan and add the brown sugar to the pan.
  6. Allow the sugar to melt about half way and add the cream.
  7. Bring to a bubble and add chicken back to pan
  8. Simmer for 3-5 minutes and serve over butter egg noodles or rice.
  9. Enjoy!
