Sheet Pan Brown Sugar Chicken


Sheet pan dinners are perfect for all of us who cook in a small kitchen.  This Baked Brown Sugar Chicken recipe is quick to prep and comes out full of flavor. The recipe speaks for itself , so not much else I can say except use  plump fresh bone-in with skin chicken to get the full flavor.

I prefer buying one large chicken breast and slice in half but 2 smaller chicken breast works just as well.
