Easy and delicious chicken recipe. 5 ingredients, gluten-free and family friendly. Perfect way to liven up plain chicken.
  • 4 x 4 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ½ tsp pepper (or to taste)
  • 1½ Tbsp salted butter
  • 4 tsp coconut palm sugar (or sucanat)
  1. Pat your chicken breasts until dry. If they are thicker on one end and thinner on the other, pound them out a bit between 2 sheets of plastic wrap so they are even thickness.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Sprinkle pepper over the chicken breasts.
  4. Melt the butter in your skillet and place the raw chicken breasts in the pan. Cook until browned on one side (depending on the thickness of your breasts, it will be about 5-7 min per side).
  5. Add the garlic to the pan when you're flipping it to the second side. If you add it too early in the pan, there's a chance it will burn.
  6. Once chicken is almost cooked, flip it over in the pan again to have a hot side up. Sprinkle each chicken breast with 1 tsp of coconut sugar. The heat of the chicken itself will melt it down. If it needs a touch of help, a sheet of tin foil or a lid on for a minute will do the trick.
