Brown Sugar Chicken

Last friday night, My older sister Jenn, Her husband and 2 of their 3 boys came down to dinner.
I had been digging up cool new recipes to try and decided on this one. After we all enjoyed it and thought it was amazing, I decided it was one the definitely needed to be shared.

1 cup Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp. Honey Dijon Mustard
2 Cloves Garlic, finely minced
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Paprika
1/4 tsp. Black Pepper
1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1 cup Lemon Lime soda (sprite, 7-up, etc)
1 1/2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts

-Mixing bowl
-Gallon size ziploc bag


1: Mix brown sugar, honey dijon mustard, minced garlic, salt, paprika, black pepper, red pepper flakes, and sprite in bowl. Whisking until sugar is mostly or completely dissolved. (I couldn't get it to dissolve completely)

2: Pour into a gallon size ziploc bag, Add chicken, marinade in fridge for at least an hour, turning over halfway through. (I marinaded for 2 hours turning it over at 30 minute intervals, Tasted amazing)

3: Carefully remove chicken from bag and place on grill over medium heat until fully cooked. (I saved some of the marinade and would periodically squirt some over the chicken while it was cooking to keep it moist.)
*It is also possible to bake in oven, directions for baking are:
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 min or until fully cooked on a baking sheet.
