    Use Montreal Steak Marinade instead of salt and pepper. Sprinkle the dry marinade right out of the pouch onto each side of the chicken. It's loaded with garlic and peppercorn, a little goes a long way. When done, remove chicken and stir cooked rice into skillet to pick up garlic and brown sugar!! - 2/26/09

    We really liked this recipe. I used skinless, boneless thighs as that is what I had. I also melted the butter in an oven proof dish, added the garlic, salt, pepper and brown sugar to the dish and then added the chicken, coating it well. I baked it at 400 for 50 minutes, turning chicken in middle. - 5/22/09

    This is so good. So insanely, deliciously good. I like to cut the chicken into chunks and toss it with the brown sugar and garlic for more even coverage. - 10/21/08

    My whole family loved this recipe. I served with sweet potatoes and brown rice. The sauce for the chicken is great to add to the rice. It was a very tasty meal. Will add to the rotation. - 2/23/09

    Really great recipe, I love quick and easy recipes that taste great. Just a suggestions for those people who felt that it was missing something, try adding 1/2 to 1 tbsp of soy sauce to add more flavour. - 10/27/08

    This is absolutely delicious! I substituted a tbsp of olive oil for the butter and added some extra garlic (because I love garlic). By far one of the quickest, tastiest dishes I've made! - 1/11/09

    I put my garlic through a press first (2 cloves) and lightly browned them before adding strips of chicken breast. I also substituted EVOO for the butter and added a little poultry seasoning. Will make again. - 7/8/09

    This was delicious! My husband is trying to lose weight, but I've been having a hard time finding low calorie dinners that he still finds enjoyable. This one he told me I can definitely make again! He loved it! I served it with white rice and salad. I cut the chicken into smaller pieces (2" wide) - 3/4/09

    Hooray! Finally, a chicken recipe that my extremely picky teenage daughter will eat! After I removed the chicken from the skillet, I sauteed some green, red, and yellow peppers and some onion, then tossed my serving of chicken and sauce back in the pan to mix it all together. YUMMY! - 12/30/10

    This was delicious AND my 3.5 year old ate it! I'm always looking for recipes the wholefamily will eat. 2 TBS of butter just seemed like a lot (not so much for calories but just for the way I cook) so I used less, and more garlic. And it turned out very well. Fast, easy, and family friendly. - 1/23/09

    I also added bell pepper and pineapple chunks for a little sweet and sour taste. It was a good idea from a previous "rater". - 10/11/08

    I adjusted the recipe some.. i chopped up the chicken into small pieces because of time, and i made this with brown rice and mixed it all together. i also added spinach - it seemed to need something since i mixed it with the rice. but this recipe is AMAZING! - 5/30/10

    Didn't think it was going to be that great, but LOVED it! I added a bit more garlic, but that's because I LOVE garlic. Highly recommend this! - 10/25/08

    This one was just okay for us. Perhaps it would be better to make a brown sugar and garlic marinade, because we felt like the flavor was only on the outside of the chicken. The rest of it was pretty bland. It's a good idea to start with, though. - 7/1/09

    Wow, what an interesting mix. I used Olive oil instead of butter and lemon pepper as someone else had suggested. I also cooked some yellow peppers in the "sauce" that was left.
    Everything was great! Next time I think I want to try Veggie pepper though. - 1/23/09
