Brown Sugar Spiced Baked Chicken

Prep Time 5 minutes Cook Time 22 minutes

When school is in session and my family is running around with our hectic schedules, I need an arsenal of simple and quick meals! It's a war out there people and I only have one child! I can't even imagine all of the rushing about a family of six has to endure.  This baked chicken recipe is one of my favorite recipes to make during the weekday. I make an extra large batch to have leftovers for salads, tacos, and sandwiches. Super delicious, this slightly sweet chicken is pleasing to everyone's taste buds and takes me 5 minutes to prep and 20 to bake! Serve it alongside buttery rice or pasta, a nice salad, and dinner is on the table in a flash.
