I have a thing about garlic and brown sugar so I made up a chicken breast recipe using both. Serve over rice or mashed potatoes.

  • 12 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, halved

  • 1 pinch garlic powder, or to taste

  • 1 pinch seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®), or to taste

  • 1 pinch dried oregano, or to taste

  • 1 pinch steak seasoning, or to taste

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1 ½ cups warm water

  • 2 tablespoons salted butter

  • ½ cup chopped onion, or to taste

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Season chicken with garlic powder, seafood seasoning, oregano, steak seasoning, and black pepper. Place in a baking dish, skin-side up; chicken breasts should be close to each other but not overlapping.

  3. Dissolve brown sugar and honey in warm water.

  4. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic until onion is transparent, about 5 minutes. Do not drain. Add mixture to brown sugar-honey mixture. Pour evenly over chicken. Cover.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 30 minutes. Uncover and continue to bake until golden, about 10 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
