Last year sometime I saw a version of this recipe on Pinterest and it looked good but I forgot all about it until a few months ago when I was struggling for ideas on what to cook for supper with very few ingredients at home. I vaguely remembered seeing this but couldn’t remember the quantities etc so I just threw it all together with the addition of an extra ingredient and WOW.
I don’t know who originally gave me the idea on pinterest but thanks
So here you go a very simple supper:
Garlic sugared chicken
You will need:
- 3 chicken breasts
- 5 tablespoons of brown sugar
- 5 tablespoons of olive oil
- 4 garlic cloves crushed or diced
- 1/2 teaspoon of dried chilli flakes
Preheat your oven at gas mark 4.
Warm olive oil in a cazuela or ovenproof pan in your hob before adding your garlic and chilli until softened and then add your chicken for just long enough to brown. Once your chicken is browned stir in the brown sugar until coated and then place in oven for around 15 minutes before stirring again to ensure your chicken is well covered in the garlicky, sugary goodness. Place back in oven for 10 mins then shred the chicken whilst still in the pan, stir through again and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Serve with a large salad and Nigella Lawsons Tuscan chips. ( recipe below)
This chicken is deliciously sweet and goey with a kick of chilli.
