This was really a hit with the family! I only had vidalia onions so added one cup as they are a bit sweeter than normal onions. By the time the chicken was cooked, the sauce had thickened beautifully and looked pretty spread over the chicken. When I make this again I'll serve it with rice and perhaps add a sliced red pepper for color. Thanks for a great recipe.
