  • Double the Recipe. You can make this dish in batches and use the leftovers to top on salads or in tacos.
  • Use Wings: This Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken will make an excellent addition to your football parties. You can serve your favorite bone in wings with this sauce or cut the boneless chicken breast up and serve them as chicken bites.
  • Like it Spicy?: Feel free to add a little more kick with some extra red pepper flake or a splash of your favorite hot sauce. Not a fan of spice. Eliminate the red pepper flakes.
