Sweet Garlic Pecan Honey Chicken

deb baldwin


I saw this on Facebook, and decided to try it out. I figured, since it only had a few ingredients that it could not turn out to bad. Wow, what a nice chicken dish! The chicken breasts were very moist and very tasty!.I loved to combined ingredients..This is my take on this wonderful dish. Although it said to use 4 chicken breast, I used only 2 and it was a perfect amount for the topping on the chicken.

My dinner even looked like the recipe photos..which is amazing..these photos are mine.

chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless
4-5 clove
garlic, minced
4 Tbsp
brown sugar
1 Tbsp
olive oil
1 Tbsp
additional herbs and spices as desired, i used a spice blend that i really liked
2 Tbsp
"cabela's "open season" spice blend" - pecan honey
salt and pepper to taste


1Oven: 450
Line a baking dish with aluminum foil and lightly coat with cooking spray or brush with olive oil. I used homemade pan grease (I use instead of cooking spray)
2Take the whole garlic cloves and place on a napkin and put in microwave and microwave for 20 to 30 seconds. The cloves will now slip out of their skins and you can chop and mince as needed...careful they are hot hot.
3In a small fry pan, saute chopped or minced garlic in the olive oil and butter till tender and then remove from heat.
4Stir in brown sugar and add your spices. I would recommend a season or spice blend that you like for your first try at this dish.
5Place the chicken breast in your prepared baking dish and cover with your garlic/brown sugar mixture.
Salt and pepper to taste.
6Bake, uncovered for 30 to 35 minutes depending on the size of your chicken breast..I use a meat thermometer, and when it registers 180 degrees, it is done.
7I served this chicken dish with rice, peas and garlic bread. I had leftover macaroni salad also, but was too full to eat any, so I will have it the next day.
8Cabela's spice blends can be purchased at their stores or over the internet..This Pecan Honey seasoning is my favorite.
