Brown Sugar Chicken
Ingredients:1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons Dijon style mustard
1 clove (1 large or 2 small) garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flake
1/2-1 cup lemon-lime soda
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1. Combine brown sugar, mustard and seasonings in a bowl and mix well. Stir in soda just until mixture is the consistency of a thick dressing.
2. Place chicken in a dish or plastic ziploc bag and pour marinade on top. Let chicken sit in marinade at least 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until fully cooked. Or, grill the chicken until fully cooked.
3. If desired, pour the remaining marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Spoon over cooked chicken.
