Simply Great Chicken (and it's cheap too!)

Sorry for the is that time of the year!

Rummaging around Pinterest, I came across this recipe that seemed so gross with its' ingredients that I knew it had to be good. I jumped at trying it because I saw it as another way to serve the chicken thighs I love.

I didn't realize how much I would enjoy this recipe. The 3 ingredients combined together really do work and work well! There was a tangy sweet to the chicken. Plus, it is cheap! I serve it over a bed of rice with some of the drippings spooned over it and with a nice veggie.

On a side note, I did double Italian dressing mix and brown sugar. I really wanted a nice sauce and coating and felt that the original numbers looked kind of anemic to cover all the chicken. I am happy I did.

So, kudos to Food for a Hungry Soul blog for posting this delightful recipe! It is definitely a keeper on those hectic nights!

So, here we go!:


3 lbs Bone In/Skin On Chicken Thighs
2 Packages Dry Italian Dressing Mix (such as Good Seasonings)
1 cup Brown Sugar


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. LINE A 9x13 PAN WITH ALUMINUM FOIL! Trust me on this one...the sugar caramelizes! Spray with non-stick cooking spray.

2) Combine dressing and brown sugar in a Ziploc bag.

3) Rinse and dry chicken.

4) Shake chicken in mixture and place in pan.

5) Bake for one hour.

Dinner is done! I told you it was simple.
