Chicken with Apples and Caramelized Onions

Chicken with Apples and Caramelized OnionsHere’s another one of those many recipes I promised you for skinless, boneless chicken breasts! The chicken is simply grilled or broiled, but then it’s topped with a nice sauce made with apple and onion flavored with balsamic vinegar and ginger. It’s easy and tasty. This is adapted from a recipe in the Detroit Free Press, which says it was “from and tested by the Chicago Tribune.”

Ingredients:

1 Tbs. olive oil
1 medium onion, halved and sliced thin
1 medium tart apple, cored, halved and thinly sliced
1 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. honey
1 tsp. minced ginger
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat the broiler or a grill pan. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens, about 5 minutes. Add the apple, balsamic vinegar, honey and ginger. Cook, stirring frequently, until the apple slices soften and the onions caramelize, about 10 minutes. While the onions and apples are cooking, season the chicken and broil, turning halfway through cooking, until cooked through, about 12 minutes total. Cut the chicken lengthwise into slices and transfer to plates. Top with the onion-apple mixture.
