Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness
  • salt and pepper to taste

Sauce

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2-4 tablespoons hot sauce
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (you could substitute white vinegar)
  • 1/3 cup water

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease a large baking sheet (with a raised side) or casserole dish.
  • In a medium sauce pan whisk together all sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium heat and boil for 3-4 minutes. While sauce is boiling, season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides, grease a skillet and cook chicken on both sides 1-2 minutes over medium heat, just enough to brown the very outside.
  • Arrange chicken in a single layer (not overlapping) on prepared baking sheet. Brush with sauce. (there should still be plenty of sauce leftover - reserve for later). Bake for 20-25 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Pour remaining sauce over the chicken and serve hot.
