    This is my husband's new favorite! I make it every week! I bake chicken tenders for 20 minutes at 400.

    It was tasty but I feel it needs something.

    It was good, maybe a little less brown sugar

    Wasn’t sure at first after mixing the sauce - I used jar minced garlic, about a tablespoon full & the rest as called for. The results were very good! Would make again for sure! Paired it with some baked petite red potatoes and frozen green beans baked with some evoo & garlic powder.

    This recipe was so easy and delicious! The chicken breasts I had were a little thicker so I cut them in half lengthwise. I also had to thaw them. When I put them in the oven they were slightly frozen in the middle. I was concerned they'd turn out dry cooking them at 500° but they were just right and very tasty! Win win for my first Yummly recipe!

    Awesome taste!! I recommend less cooking time at 500F though.

    This was really easy and great! A couple helpful tips: 1). line your baking dish with tin foil. The brown sugar will caramelize and become like glue onto your pan. 2). I would make sure your chicken is thinly sliced or pound it till it's about 1/4 inch thick. I only cooked my chicken for 15-20 minutes. If my chicken had been thicker I would have had really dry chicken on the top by the time the inside was cooked. Otherwise this dish was wonderful and I will absolutely make it again. My husband and daughter loved it.

    I love this recipe. I used chicken strips instead of the whole breast. You do have to cook it less, about 20-22 minutes. If you go over that, the sauce it makes will burn and then you cannot use it. Will remember that next time.
