Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat. Cook garlic in oil until tender. Place chicken in skillet and cook about 5 minutes on each side. Sprinkle chicken with paprika (and salt and pepper to taste) and the brown sugar; put back in skillet and brown for 1-2 minutes on each side. Pour red wine around chicken. Cover and simmer about 20-30 minutes; lightly baste chicken with wine sauce while cooking.

Makes 8 servings: each serving is a piece of 4 ounce chicken breast plus 1/8 of the sauce.

Serving suggestion: remove chicken from skillet and thicken sauce with 1 Tbsp cornstarch then serve as gravy over mashed potatoes.

For a slightly different variation, try replacing 1/4 cup of the wine with chicken broth.
