Ready In:



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

    Nice quick and easy chicken recipe! I used thin-sliced, boneless skinless breasts and I think the cook time would have been too short if I hadn't. I used fat-free half-and-half with good results. I thought the garlic cut the sweetness of the sauce enough, although I did also season generously with salt and pepper. This makes a good weeknight meal when you need something quick - thanks for posting the recipe!

    My sister was skeptical about the thought of 'caramelized' chicken, but even she was converted. She loved it, and so did I!

    I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but I followed this recipe exactly. The chicken was no where near to being done when I browned it. So I cooked the sauce and hoped it would boil until it was done. However, there was barely any sauce and by the time the chicken was finally done, the sauce was totally burnt...my fire alarm went off. We ended making new sauce but the chicken was then burnt on the outside and just done on the inside. Then my kitchen smelled of burnt garlic and brown sugar all night. Again, not sure if I did something wrong becuase I didn't see anyone else with this issue.

    I really don't like to give less then 5 star reviews, but I have learnt that reviewing a recipe honestly, will help with the next person making it. With that said....I have to agree with momaphet review, this was caramel sweetness. I added green onions also. Well sweet it was, so I dropped in a few dashes of Tabasco sauce. We managed to eat it, (a little bit) but was HOT! So I prep'd a Ceasar Salad. I didn't get to take a photo :( cuz my digital cam batteries went dead and we had bad weather today and I didn't want to go out just for batteries.
