Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken

Dec 03

I’m still exhausted from the holidays, how about you?!?

Do you still have leftovers  that you’re trying to finish or going out to eat just to avoid trying to make dinner? Don’t think about eating out tonight or eating cold turkey sandwiches. Instead, make this baked garlic brown sugar chicken. The recipe is so simple, and you will honestly be surprised how delicious this chicken is. It is perfect for that day when you don’t want to cook but want some home cooking at the same time. I’m making sense, right?!?

I’m still tired from our road trip…bear with me, and eat this chicken :)
