3-Ingredient Brown Sugar Italian Chicken - Plain Chicken

shares

This baked chicken only has 3 ingredients – including the chicken! Plus, there is no prep work involved. Woohoo! Just coat the chicken in brown sugar and Italian dressing mix then throw in the oven. That’s it! SO easy!

Not only is this chicken a snap to make, it tastes great! We both gobbled this chicken up! Sweet and savory in every bite! We served this with some Parmesan Rice Grits and Green Beans. YUM! I can’t wait to make this again!!

I highly suggest lining your pan with foil. The brown sugar mixture gets sticky as it bakes. After dinner, throw away the foil and the dishes are done! Easy prep and easy clean up.. It just doesn’t get any better!

Ingredients:

  • 4 to 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 (0.7-oz) packet Italian Dressing Mix

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a 9x13-inch baking pan with aluminum foil.
  • Combine the brown sugar and Italian dressing mix. Coat both sides of the chicken with the brown sugar mixture. Place in prepared pan. Top chicken with any remaining brown sugar mixture.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Turn broiler on HIGH. Broil chicken until brown sugar caramelizes, about 1 to 2 minutes. Watch it carefully so it doesn't burn!

Notes:

Do NOT make the Italian dressing. Use the dry mix only.
