Foodie Friday: Episode 2

I love Pinterest; however, I rarely ever use what I pin onto one of my boards. I decided to change that. The end of the semester is definitely a hectic one for college students.That is why for my 5 year anniversary last night, I chose to make a relaxing dinner instead of going out. I went onto my trusty “Foodie” Pinterest board and found a recipe to use.

I chose an “Easy Garlic Chicken” pin and clicked through into the website. Here are the ingredients and Directions I found for the recipe on


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon olive oil
additional herbs and spices, as desired


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F Line a baking dish or cookie sheet with aluminum foil and lightly coat with cooking spray or lightly brush with oil.
  2. In small sauté pan, sauté garlic with the oil until tender.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar. Add additional herbs and spices as desired.
  4. Place chicken breasts in a prepared baking dish and cover with the garlic and brown sugar mixture.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Bake uncovered for 15-30 minutes, or until juices run clear. Cooking time will depend on the size and thickness of your chicken.


I took the chicken out of the oven and it looked exactly like the pictures! And that never happens for me ever!

I paired the chicken with macaroni and cheese and Pillsbury Flakey Biscuits (A.K.A Comfort food) What more could you want during a time of high stress?

I can not wait for the next time, I can utilize my “Foodie” Pinterest board.

I can only hope it turns out as good as this one did!

Stay tuned
