Easy garlic chicken

16 Jul

I’m going to say right up front, I altered this recipe. Not because I didn’t think it’d be good as it was written but for different reasons. But I’ll get to that later.

Chicken is in my freezer at any given time. I can prepare almost any dish that uses chicken as a main ingredient because it’s always on hand. Makes it nice but at the same time I’m always met with the same dilemma, what the heck am I gonna DO with it!? Which is why I was excited to find so many chicken dishes on pinterest. This one used things that I had in the pantry and it sounded really good, not to mention easy. So off I went.

As I was sautéing the garlic with the olive oil, I already knew the brown sugar wasn’t going to dissolve as it should. I pressed on but decided to add a splash of soy sauce. Not too much but enough to allow things to blend together into a sauce rather than a paste like I had before. The other reason I added it was because the hubster doesn’t care for sweet entrees. I figured soy would be a good way to counter e sweet but leave a teeny hint of it. It totally worked.

I adjusted the temp of my oven for the original 500 degrees to about 400 degrees. The chicken cooked up very tender, juicy and full of flavor. The soy added a nice well rounded salty was that worked perfectly with the brown sugar. I served it with steamed rice and a side of mixed veggies. Positive reviews were given so this dish goes into the ‘will make again’ list.
