3-Ingredient Brown Sugar Italian Chicken

When the weather is nice, I am always in search of quick and easy recipes so that I can spend my time enjoying the weather. This 3-ingredient brown sugar Italian chicken falls into the quick and easy category like none other. It is a “dump” recipe which I love. I call any recipe that can’t be screwed up a dump recipe. This is one of them. Just mix the brown sugar and Italian dressing mix together and slather it on the chicken – DONE. The hardest part is lining your pan with foil.
So easy is good but it requires more than that – it has to be good. This one is…very good. It will taste like you slaved over this recipe.
