40 in 2013 #1- Garlic & Brown Sugar Chicken or Easy Garlic Chicken

*I set a goal to cook/bake/make 40 new things in 2013*

I pin food things (and drinks) on pinterest, but if I’m not going to make them then it’s just internet clutter. And who likes clutter? So I thinned down my boards to things I would actually make and I’ve been slowly working through making new things. It boiled down to 1 per week skipping 12 weeks. That sounded totally manageable. You can see though… I’m quite behind.

My notes: I used a roasting pan-not so great idea b/c the sugar burned… I would try this again in a glass baking dish, bonus points- Jeremy liked it, we had the roasted brussels sprouts with it

Here’s the recipe from:  http://www.food.com/recipe/easy-garlic-chicken-5478
