But, my mom came into town and I couldn't settle for ordering pizza for dinner. So, Pinterest to rescue. I had pinned THIS a while ago, and figured this was as good as any time to try it out.

Ingredients: 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts; 4 garlic cloves, minced; 4 tablespoons brown sugar; 3 teaspoons olive oil
That's it! I mean, simple, quick and an easy way to impress mom and show her all her cooking and baking lessons paid off! Viola!Directions: 1 Preheat oven to 500°F and lightly grease a casserole dish. 2 In small sauté pan, sauté garlic with the oil until tender. 3 Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar. 4 Place chicken breasts in a prepared baking dish and cover with the garlic and brown sugar mixture. 5 Add salt and pepper to taste. 6 Bake uncovered for 15-30 minutes.
Again, I varied the recipe 'cause I didn't have all the ingredients. But I guess this shows you that you don't have to have all the ingredients in a recipe to still make it delicious, because BOY! It was GOOOOD and I super impressed myself.
I didn't have garlic gloves to "mince", but I had jar garlic that looked minced. :-) I sauteed that with vegetable oil instead of olive. I did notice though that even though the recipe said the seasoning would be good for four chicken breasts ... I had to make more to cover all four.
We also have buttered noodles (a boxed meal) and asparagus sauteed in butter and lemon. I'm super happy how it came out and like I said, it was GOOD!
