brown sugar chicken 

I told myself I was going to post more.  I take the pictures, I think of what to say, and I never actually do it.  I made this recipe at the beginning of last month. While scrolling through photos, I came across these and decided to share.  This is perhaps the easiest chicken dish I’ve ever made. This simple dish has so much flavor.  My husband devoured it and I wish I had made more…

Brown sugar Chicken

Serves 2

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 shallot, peeled and sliced 

2-3 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon coconut oil

Salt and pepper 

Pine nuts for garnish ( optional)   

Start by seaoning chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

In a cast iron pan, heat the coconut  oil over medium heat 

  
    Sauté on each side for about 5 minutes.  

  
 

Add shallots and let cook for a few minutes.
  

Add butter and brown sugar;  stir together, turn heat to low and cover. 

  

Cook for 5- 20 minutes ( depending on thickness of chicken) internal temperature should be 165. 
  
Serve chicken with the sauce and pine nut garnish ( if using) 

It’s crazy how much flavor this dish ☺️
my neice had asked me awhile ago to share some simple recipes with great flavor.  I think this fits the bill perfectly!  
enjoy 😎

Inexpensive design wall

howdy!   For awhile now I’ve wanted to make a design wall.  This is a space dedicated on a wall in my craft room where I can put the pieces of my quilts as I’m piecing so that I can start to seem quilt come together. 

I’ve done a bunch of research and finally made one this week.  For under 15 bucks! 

I bought these fun little nuggets at Home Depot 

 

Little clothes pins!   And oh so easy to attach! 

The backside of a flannel table cloth is the perfect surface for a wall like this.  The flannel is just fuzzy enough so that you fabric pieces will stick to it without any pins! 

I set out to find a flannel backed tablecloth this week.  I couldn’t find one anywhere! 

Sooo.. I headed to joanns fabrics and they have outdoor fabric that you can buy by the yard 

  

 Fun print, eh?  I might have to go buy more for another project! 

It was 5.99 a yard.. I bought 2 yards and with a 50% coupon it was well.. 5.99 

(Don’tcha love my mad math skills? 🙂 )

I simply spaced the little clothespins across the top of my wall 

Then went to hang the tablecloth.. But the tablecloth was too thin and kept slipping out of the clips 

I added a piece of webbing left over from tote bags I made a few years back 

 

And voila! It was perfect! 

  

  I’m very proud of little ol’ me 🙂 

Enjoy your Sunday!
