  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts thawed (5-ounce pieces)
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 dry Italian dressing mix (0.7 ounce packet)
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and the contents of the Italian dressing mix (do not prepare the Italian dressing; simply use the dry packet contents) and the paprika.
  • Line a baking dish (9x13 works great) with aluminum foil for easy clean-up.
  • Place chicken pieces in a single layer in the baking dish. Using a pastry brush, brush both sides of the chicken pieces with olive oil. Sprinkle the brown sugar seasoning mix on both sides of the chicken, then, using your hands, rub the mix into the chicken.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Switch the oven to the broil setting and broil for 2 to 3 minutes or until the top of the chicken is lightly golden and bubbly.
