I was excited for this meal. The baked garlic and brown sugar chicken I had been wanting to try because it sounded and looked so good. The parmesan roasted green beans also looked good. My overall rating of this meal would be 6 out of 10 stars. I was mildly disappointed by this meal. Let’s start with the chicken. I thought it lacked flavor which is saying a lot because garlic has a strong flavor to it. It was easy whip up which is a positive but I was not impressed with the chicken and if I never made it again I wouldn’t be heartbroken. The parmesan roasted green beans were the highlight of this meal. I’m not huge into the green bean scene but Chad loves them so I decided it would be nice to make them for him. These came out very cheesy which is never a bad thing. Again mildly disappointed with this meal. I would probably make the green beans again since they were easy and Chad enjoyed them.

The green bean recipe is taken from Budget Savy Diva  and the chicken is taken from Daydream Kitchen
