Chicken with Caramelized Onions and White Wine



If you have picky eaters in the house and have run out of chicken options, we suggest this simple, yet gourmet dish! Inspired by Mrs. P's grandmother's recipe, this simple dinner is sure to become a family favorite. They will love the soft, tender chicken and the sweet, caramelized onions.

Serves 3-4

2 large boneless and skinless chicken breasts
1 large white onion
1 tablespoon of unsalted butter
3 tablespoons of olive oil
2 cups of white wine
Salt
Pepper
White rice
Parsley

Kitchen Essentials:
Knife
Cutting board
Pan
Large Bowl
Small bowl
Measuring cups and spoons

Instructions:
Cut each of the chicken breasts into 4-5 pieces, making sure each one is about the same size so they cook evenly. Season with salt and pepper and set aside in a bowl in the refrigerator.

Next, slice the onion into thin rings. Over medium low heat, melt the butter and 2 tbsp. of the olive oil in the pan. Place the onions in the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook until they are tender, about 10-15 minutes.

Remove the onions from the pan and place in a bowl. Add one more tablespoon of olive oil and cook the chicken on each side for a few minutes until it forms a golden brown crust.

Add the wine and the onions and cook for another 15 minutes until the sauce reduces. Serve over white rice, sprinkle with parsley and you have one delicious meal! Enjoy!
