Balsamic Chicken Thighs with Red Onions

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Bansidhe

I like using balsamic vinegar in my cooking, and this recipe is no exception: You can substitute chicken breasts, but I'd advise against it -- The thighs are higher in fat, but taste much better. Note: Very good over cooked rice.

THis was great! I seared the thighs in a littel olive oil before I threw the onions in the pan and it made the final product kind of crispy on the outside. I didn't try it the other way but I would make it this way 100 more times! Thanks for the great recipe Bansidhe...
