Chicken with Balsamic Vinegar and Sweet Onions

A Weight Watcher’s recipe with three of my favorite ingredients; balsamic vinegar, onions and thyme.  Delicious together and another recipe that I have changed just a little.  After eating some Krispy Kreme Monkey Bread for breakfast yesterday I needed to be careful of what I had for dinner!

Chicken with Balsamic Vinegar and Sweet Onions

  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts (4 oz.) each
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 sweet onion, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. thyme, fresh or 1/2 to 1 tsp. dried
  • 2 tsp. salted butter ( I do not add)

Combine flour, salt and pepper and dredge chicken in this mixture.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet.  Add chicken and cook depending on its thickness.  I always like to pound the chicken breasts thinner than what you buy in the grocery. This time it took about 7 minutes per side.  Remove and keep warm.

Add onion to the skillet and saute until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.  Add broth, vinegar, thyme and salt and pepper to taste.  Bring to a boil; cook, stirring often until onions are tender.

I like to add the chicken back to the skillet to reheat for a few minutes.  Remove skillet from heat and stir in butter (optional – I do not add); spoon sauce over chicken.  The butter does help thicken the sauce…

Weight Watcher’s Points Value of 5 per 1 (4 oz.) chicken breast and 1/4 cup onion sauce
