Bacon Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken, The Best Chicken You’ll Ever Eat With Only 4 Ingredients. Sticky, Crispy, Sweet And Garlicky, The PERFECT Weeknight Meal.
Bacon Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken is a recipe we’ve actually been making at home for years but I never thought to post because it is so closely related to this Slow Cooker Bacon Garlic Pork Loin and Brown Sugar Garlic Pork.
If I had to guess, I’d say about 10% of the comments and emails I get from readers are in reference to those two posts above and they’re asking if they can use chicken. YES YES YES. I recently posted Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken and wanted to post this oven baked version as well (with chicken breast meat!).
This Bacon Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken is as simple as it sounds. Yes salt and pepper add flavor too (so technically 6 ingredients?) but even without those two, you’ll still have so much flavor it will leave you literally wanting to lick the plate.
- 2/3 cup brown sugar packed
- 3 tablespoons garlic minced
- 3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 6 chicken breasts boneless and skinless (4-5 ounces each)
- 12 slices bacon
Note: click on times in the instructions to start a kitchen timer while cooking.
In a large bowl add the brown sugar, garlic, salt and pepper and mix until combined.
Coat the chicken in the brown sugar mixture.
Wrap each piece of chicken with two slices of bacon (aim for the end of the bacon pieces to stay under the chicken to prevent unwrapping while cooking).
Place into your baking pan (with at least 2 inch high sides).
Top with the remaining brown sugar mixture.
Cook at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until cooked through and browned.
Careful to not let the brown sugar burn and blacken.
