Caramelized Onion and Garlic Chicken

Bone-in chicken breasts have always been a foe of mine.
I will always go for boneless, skinless chicken breasts any day.
In my opinion, they are very easy to use and adapt to any recipe.
That is until the other day.

Remember, last post I mentioned about the meat package
the hubby and I purchased? Well, I guess I must have misread
the package listing. Instead of boneless chicken breasts,
 bone-in chicken breasts were included.
YIKES!!

So, it was off to Pinterest to see what recipes I could find
for my arch enemy.

Let me just say, this recipe did not disappoint. I will be buying more
bone-in chicken breasts just to make this recipe. The chicken was
super moist and very flavorful. Honestly, probably the best
chicken I have had in a long time.


This recipe comes from About Food.
If you have never checked out this recipe site, I 
would highly recommend it to anyone.
You can find recipes for about anything, which
I love. Plus, the steps are easy to follow.

Caramelized Onion and Garlic Chicken
Original recipe can be found here.

You will need the following ingredients:

2 Tbsp olive oil
2 large onions, sliced
4 cloves garlic. minced
1/3 c brown sugar
2 Tbsp white wine cooking wine
4 split chicken breasts, bone-in
salt and pepper to taste

**NOTE** The original recipe calls for white wine vinegar.
However, I used the cooking wine because that is what
I had on hand. It tasted just fine but next time I will try
with the vinegar.

PREHEAT OVEN TO 425 DEGREES

1. Chop your onions and garlic.


 2. Heat 1 Tbsp on the olive oil in skillet and add the 
onion and garlic. Cook these for 10 minutes, stirring often.

3. While the onions and garlic are cooking, coat 
your backing dish with the remaining Tbsp of olive oil.
Place chicken in pan bone side down.

4. Salt and pepper chicken. 

5. After the onions/garlic have cooked, time to add
the brown sugar and wine. 



6. Cook for another 6-7 minutes.

7. Once onions are done, pour the onions
over your chicken breasts.

8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until chicken is
cooked thoroughly. If you notice the onions are getting
a little dark, loosely cover the pan with foil.


I served the chicken with some greens beans.
It really was a delicious little dinner.

I hope you all enjoy!!

Love to you all from the
