Menu Monday

The beautiful Jennifer at One43 just started a fun new link-up and I am really excited about it! (:

It is Menu Monday and you can read more about it on her lovely blog.

I have been trying to menu plan and try new recipes more and more now that I am a stay at home wife. I want to get a routine down for whenever I go back to work.. I am already in the groove of it. hehe.

This link up will be a lovely way to help. (: So here is my recipe for this week. (:

Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken 

I originally found this recipe from The Novice Chef

- 4 chicken breasts
- 4 Tablespoons of butter
- 4 garlic cloves
- 4 Tablespoons brown sugar
- salt and pepper to taste


- Salt and pepper both sides of chicken and set aside.

- In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, melt better. Add garlic and cook for about 2 minutes, or until fragrant and garlic/butter starts to brown slightly. {I always manage to burn my garlic.. so pay close attention to it.}

- Add chicken, cover pan, and cook for 12 minutes. Flip chicken breast and continue cooking until it is cooked thoroughly.

- Sprinkle the tops of the chicken with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. Cover pan with lid once more and let sugar melt for 1-2 minutes. Serve immediately.

-Enjoy the garlicy goodness. (:


I know.. it is awful because I did not take a picture of the final thing.... but it was delicious!

When you serve it, pour some of the garlicy syrup on top.. Mmmm. It was soo good! (:

New recipes, link ups, and love. - Monica
