Recipe: Garlic Chicken

I'm always on the look out for low calorie dinners.  Especially if they involve chicken.  This dish, though it doesn't seem like it, has very few calories.  My app says it's around 195.  So, if you're on a diet, or watching your calories, then this is the dish for you!  
I didn't know what to expect when I was making this dish...garlic and brown sugar just don't seem to go together, but they do.  Maybe not alone, but on chicken, it's the perfect blend of sweetness and spice.  This is a keeper recipe for my house!  

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
additional herbs and spices, as desired


Preheat oven to 450°F 
Line a baking dish or cookie sheet with aluminum foil and lightly coat with cooking spray or lightly brush with oil.

In small sauté pan, sauté garlic with the oil until tender.

Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar. Add additional herbs and spices as desired.

Season chicken with salt and pepper. .Place breasts in a prepared baking dish and cover with the garlic and brown sugar mixture.
Bake uncovered for 15-30 minutes, or until juices run clear.  Serve immediately!

Sorry there are two missing, we were just so hungry! haha.
