Caramel goodness

A few years ago a friend of mine posted this on a group site. Turns out my kids absolutely love this way of cooking chicken. Myself: I think it’s pretty darn good. Dr Dad: not so much.  He’s out of town for the day, guess what we’re eating tonight?

“If you don’t want to lick the pan afterward, I don’t want to talk to you anymore.” —M.


Caramelized garlic chicken

* 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I’m using thighs)
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 tablespoon of oil
* 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
* 4-6 garlic cloves, chopped
* 1/4 cup brown sugar
* 1/4 cup heavy cream


1. Sprinkle the salt and pepper onto the chicken.
2. In a medium to large sized skillet (I like cast iron) heat the oil over medium-high heat until almost smoking.
3. Add the chicken breasts and garlic to the pan and brown the first side of chicken, about 5 minutes.
4. Flip the chicken and brown the other side, about 3 minutes.
5. Remove the chicken from the pan and add the brown sugar to the pan.
6. Allow the sugar to melt about half way and add the cream.
7. Bring to a bubble and add chicken back to pan
8. Simmer for 3-5 minutes and serve.
9. Enjoy!
