Ba$tard BBQ

Some days I have it together, other days...it helps to have a go to recipe that will turn out right every time and require no heroics on my part.  With  this recipe you can have dinner ready in minutes and that will become more important as the holidays rev up!  While it cooks, hunt down a package of instant mashed potatoes, and heat up a veggie.  So easy, and yes, the kids will eat it, too.
Throw some boneless chicken thighs in a buttered dish.  Sprinkle them with garlic salt and pepper on both sides.  (If I don't have garlic salt, I just use salt and garlic powder)  Then sprinkle on a little brown sugar on each thigh.  Cook at 350 for about 45 minutes.
Chicken thighs cook up juicy - have those mashed potatoes handy to spoon some of the sweet juice over it. YUM.  This is an oldie but goodie and a family favorite at my house, lifted straight from the pages of the Compleat I Hate to Cookbook, by Peg Bracken.  It's not particularly BBQ-ie and I can't just throw the name around the kitchen in front of the kids, so I call it Brown Sugar Chicken.  Try it!  And check out her cookbook; she was a very funny lady who had some neat recipes.

I'm always looking for new things to do with chicken. I often season with pepper and garlic salt, but never brown sugar. I'll have to try this soon!

Thanks for linking up for Friday Favorites last week. Hope to see you again this week. Also, I'd like to invite you to come by next Thursday for my Holly Bloggy Christmas Recipe Party!
