What are you having for dinner tonight? We're having Incredible Chicken. I'm not bragging - that's the name of the recipe, and believe me, this chicken lives up to its name. It is SO easy, it's almost ridiculous that it's an actual recipe in a cookbook. It's from Noteworthy, a collection of recipes from the Ravinia Festival. Ravinia is a nearby venue for outdoor summer concerts, and it's very popular to pack an elaborate picnic and a couple of bottles of wine to take to the concerts. Every recipe in this book has been good, so I couldn't pass up one called Incredible Chicken. Here it is:
This unlikely combination of ingredients is delicious (it says this in the book)
1 chicken, quartered
1/4-1/3 cup brown sugar
Arrange chicken skin side up in a lightly oiled baking pan. Season fairly heavily with garlic salt. Sprinkle generously with brown sugar. Bake in preheatd 375 degree oven 1 hour. Cover with foil after 30 to 45 minutes if chicken appears too dry. May be served hot or cold.
Instead of one whole chicken, I use bone-in, skin-on breasts. It comes out great every time, smells delicious, and is really good with rice and veggies.
