Pinterest Inspires

Well, through so many hours of surfing the web, specifically Pinterest, a girl tends to get a lot of ideas!  Being inspired, I tried my hand at a recipe that I found - Garlic Brown Sugar Baked Chicken.

I gathered 2 Chicken Breasts, 2 minced garlic cloves, 2 tbsp. brown sugar and 2 tsp. of olive oil (Four 2's! :))  The oven was preheated to 500 F, as the pinterest directions called for.  In a saute pain, I heated the oil and cooked the garlic.  After the garlic was cooked, I removed the pan from the heat and stirred in the brown sugar.  I had the chicken in a casserole dish and covered the chicken with the mixture.  I baked it for about 25 minutes.  When it came out of the oven, the oil had bubbled up and turned black.  I was quite nervous that I had botched the recipe and burnt the whole thing!  Luckily, when I took the chicken out of the pan, it wasn't burnt at all - phew! :)

It turned into a lovely dinner.  In hindsight, I would use a lower heat and let the chicken stay in the oven for a little longer so that it would be a little more moist.  It had a nice flavor though - I love garlic! :)


  1. Holly, I made this recipe back when you "pinned" it-- it was really good, but I agree with your adjustments. It wasn't quite moist enough, so I will incorporate your "tweaks" next time. I love following your blog and your pinterest account! I just want to vicariously live through you ;-). Love you, best friend!

  2. We will have to share how our tweaks turn out! :) Love you too!!
