Haha, well several years after writing this post originally, I had to re-write it because basically nothing was true anymore.
I wrote that almost none of my recipes have chicken (I literally grill chicken every night now), that knowing whether the chicken is cooked stresses me out (true, but I’ve discovered meat thermometers), and that I hate dealing with raw meat (still true, but I’ve had to man up). I’ve updated a few of the recipe details as well.
BUT, what is still true about this delish chicken recipe is that it’s super fast, easy, and healthy. And that still makes it a winner (winner, chicken dinner) in my book.
This recipe is so easy and not remotely stressful, even on a harried weeknight. It even got a super thumbs up from a guy friend, so don’t worry about the brown sugar making it too “frou frou”. I served this with a delicious cauliflower leek risotto and some sauteed kale and they went great together. We were super stuffed afterward.
Note, I’ve recently updated the photos and the recipe itself to improve the overall output.
The best part about this? Five minutes of actual hands-on time, and then it’s in the oven. Start your ovens…
