1 pound (4-ounces each) boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to an even thickness (about 1-inch thick)
salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
3 tablespoons butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried oregano, or any other dried herb of your choice
Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a 9×13 baking dish with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper; transfer to prepared baking dish and set aside.
Add butter and garlic to a skillet set over medium-high heat; cook and stir until butter is melted and garlic is fragrant.
Stir in brown sugar, paprika, and seasonings; continue to cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat and let stand 1 minute, or until cool enough to handle.
Rub the brown sugar and garlic mixture all around the chicken breasts.
Bake uncovered for 20 to 25 minutes, or until browned on top and chicken’s internal temperature reaches 165F. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
