Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken

Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken













 One of my favorite chicken recipes…especially if I want something easy and fast.  This is the best and easiest chicken ever and the sweet garlic sauce is truly amazing.  I could eat this every day.  Serve with rice or mashed potatoes or any other side. Your guests will love it!

  Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken

 8 boneless, skin-on chicken thighs

salt and black pepper, to taste

4 tablespoons salted butter, divided

4 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

1 tablespoon honey

½ teaspoon dried oregano

¼ teaspoon dried thyme

¼ teaspoon dried basil

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper.


Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side; set aside. Remove chicken to a plate and set aside.


Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in the same skillet. Add garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.


Stir in brown sugar, honey, oregano, thyme and basil until well combined. Pour sauce into casserole dish and add in the chicken.   

Place into oven and roast until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 165-170 degrees, about 25-30 minutes.

 Add sauce to the plate and then place your chicken on top. 

Serve with any side you like.  Mashed potatoes are great as well as rice or any other side dish.
