Lemon Brown Sugar Chicken. I think I first saw it on Iowa Girl Eats a couple years ago, and since then, it’s become a staple member of the dinner rotation. I shove the recipe off on anyone even remotely interested in it. If I have chicken thawed and can’t think of anything else to do with it, this is what I make.
It’s easy (the oven does most of the work for you), it’s simple (minimal ingredients), and most importantly, it’s DELICIOUS! It’s a sweet and sour-type chicken that isn’t heavy and rich.
I made it for my mom during one of her visits, and she agreed that it was really good. I haven’t had the chance to make it for my dad, although I can’t remember his thoughts about sweet and sour chicken, so he might not care for it. Which is fine. It means more for me!
And no, I didn’t actually lick my plate clean (although I wanted to!):
I will say, it makes me long for the days when you’d actually get 4 chicken breasts in a package, like when I was a kid. Ah, well. One of these days, I will remember to double this so I have extra for lunches!
