  • Pop it in the oven and cook for about 20 minutes at 450F, or until chicken’s internal temperature reaches 165F.

Serve over creamed spinach, or with roasted vegetables, and/or rice.

HOW TO MAKE AHEAD

  • You can prep this ahead of time by preparing it up to the point before baking it. Just let the brown sugar mixture cool down completely; then rub it all over the chicken breasts, cover the dish tightly, and pop it in the freezer.
  • You can also freeze it in a gallon ziploc bag, then thaw it in the fridge over night. When it’s time to cook, arrange the chicken breasts in a parchment-lined baking dish and cook.
  • You can also prep it the night before, cover it tightly, and set it in the fridge until ready to cook the next day.
