    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
