Sweet Garlic Chicken

Excited, excited, excited!!!  I am very excited about this recipe!!  It is delicious...  It is easy...  It involves very few ingredients that I usually have on hand... and it is different than anything I've had before, in a good way!!   Can we say new staple??  Love new staples!!!! Now this doesn't have to be made with white rice... but I would highly suggest doing so and pouring the pan drippings over the rice... OMG Good!!  Found on pinterest via
2 boneless chicken breasts
6 cloves minced garlic
6 Tbsp brown sugar
3 tsp olive oil
1 cup white rice

Preheat oven to 350.  In a saute pan, saute garlic in olive oil until soft.  Remove from heat, stir in brown sugar.  Place chicken in baking dish and cover with garlic/sugar mixture.   Bake 30 minutes.   Meanwhile, make rice per instructions on package.   When chicken is done, there will be about 1/2 cup of juice in pan.  Reserve juice and pour over chicken & rice.   You won't be disappointed!!

Serves 2
