Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken recipe tips

Here are some tips for making the best brown sugar garlic chicken:

  1. Make sure to use chicken thighs, as they are more forgiving than chicken breasts when it comes to cooking time.
  2. Don’t skip the pan-frying step; it is key to getting a nice crispy crust on the chicken.
  3. Don’t overcook the chicken; it should be cooked through but still juicy and tender.
  4. Serve the chicken with your favorite sides, such as rice or noodles.
