Sweet Garlic Chicken is so tender with a sweet caramelized garlic crust baked up juicy in the oven! The high oven temperature used in this recipe creates the most juicy chicken you’ve ever had!
This recipe was invented for my sister who eats (and loves) garlic more than anyone I know! This is not only easy to put together, but cooks up beautiful and juicy!
The key to making this chicken absolutely perfectly juicy is the method of cooking it at a very high temperature. Not only does this seal in the juices for amazing results, it also caramelizes the sweet garlic topping.
Garlic is naturally sweet and the addition of a little bit of brown sugar makes a this chicken lip smackin’ good! Because garlic has a lot of natural sugars, you’ll want to ensure you don’t let the garlic brown in the pan, you just want it to slightly soften.
