1hr sweet and savory Chicken - just 3 ingredients!

I've been slacking on homemade meals over the last few days. Poor Chris has been slaving away in the kitchen with the fun recipes I find and in turn I've been on baby duty partying all day and night. Or something like that. So tonight Chris offered to make this great chicken recipe I found since Soph was in I deep slumber laying on me. It finished cooking and Chris said, "this was the easiest thing I've ever made and it's really good." He doesn't say this sort of stuff unless asked. He's a quiet guy when he's hungry. So here it is a yummy, easy chicken meal that's a the perfect amount of sweet and spice. 

What you'll need: 
 3 x 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken 
1  x packet of dried Italian dressing mix
1/2 cup brown sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a dish or a sheet pan with aluminum foil and make sure to cover it really good, the sugar will caramelize and it'll be easier for clean up

Rinse chicken, pat dry with paper towels.

Combine and the dried Italian seasoning mix and the brown sugar in a shallow dish or bowl. 

Dip and press the chicken pieces into the mixture, coating front and back and place into your prepared pan, topside of the chicken facing up. Any extra coating that remains can just be sprinkled over the chicken.

Cook for 50-60 minutes or until chicken is done. Half way through, if you'd like, you can scoop the extra sauce that pools around the chicken on top with a spoon to soak up more of the juices. We didn't and it was still really ridiculously good. 

Well there you go! Enjoy!
