    Balsamic Chicken with Thyme

    Source of Recipe


    1/4 cup flour
    3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
    3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
    4 skinned and boned chicken breast halves, (about 5 oz. each)
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 large red onion, halved & sliced thin
    1 cup chicken broth, approximately (fat free)
    2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, or 1/2 teaspoon dried

    Mix flour and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper on a plate. Add chicken; turn to coat. Shake off excess.

    In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken and cook, turning once, 10 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Remove to a plate; cover to keep warm.
    Add onion to skillet and sauté 1 to 2 minutes until lightly browned. Add broth, vinegar, thyme and remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring often, 7 minutes or until onions are soft and sauce is syrupy. (If onion isn't soft after cooking 7 minutes, add a little more broth and continue cooking until it is.)
    To serve: Place chicken on serving plates and spoon on onions and sauce.

    Serves 4.
