I love looking at other cooking blogs. I get some fantastic ideas from other women, and love experimenting in my kitchen. While browsing Rachel's blog, I found this recipe. It looked delicious, and the actual preparation of this dish is amazingly simple, yet it contains fantastic flavors. I'm using boneless, skinless breasts, but any cut of chicken will probably work well. Ingredients: 3.5 pounds chicken pieces (I'm just using 2 pounds because that's what I have.) 1 package dry Italian dressing mix 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
Directions: Preheat oven to 350.
Line a 9x13 inch casserole dish with foil. Rinse and pat dry your chicken pieces.
Combine the dressing mix and sugar well. Dip your chicken into the mixture, coating both sides well. Place it in your dish. Any extra of the mixture can be sprinkled on top of the chicken. Bake for 50-60 minutes, or until chicken is done. Rachel suggested turning the chicken a couple of times and brushing the tops of the pieces with the sauce.
Living in small town Oklahoma, I am married to the sweetest man you will ever meet. We have five young children, so I would now consider myself a professional juggler. I'm a wannabe crafter, cook, baker, and gardener. Some might call me crunchy. I'm okay with it.
