garlic brown sugar chicken

as soon as this recipe for garlic brown sugar chicken from jessica at the novice chef popped up in my google reader, it instantly went to the top of my weeknight dinner choices. it's the perfect combination: chicken sauteed in butter and garlic, topped with just enough brown sugar to make a sweet sauce in the bottom of the pan. spooned over rice pilaf, the sauce is like liquid gold. it doesn't hurt that it's ready in under thirty minutes.
