      I also added mushrooms when adding the onions and used more chicken stock than water. Incredibly awesome and a big hit with the family! The chicken itself was juicy and full of flavour then add on the sauce and WOW!

      This is real good! I took the suggestion of others and added mushrooms and cooked the chicken with the balsamic. I also used a more expensive balsamic as suggested. So thank you to all the reviewers!!!To the recipe I would suggest adding the mushrooms as optional because they really added to it and they were actually my favorite part. Thank you Charmie!!! A definite keeper!

      Definitely a KEEPER! I wish I could give it 20 stars! I didn't do a whole pound of onions (altho' I used two large onions--maybe they weighed a pound?). The whole thing was SIMPLE and EASY to prepare, not to mention DELICIOUS to eat. I'm SO glad that I made I can enjoy this AGAIN! On the advice of an earlier reviewer, I added about a half-pound of fresh, sliced mushrooms, and that really gave it a nice appearance (not to mention something else to LOVE!). *Made for ZWT 3 Spanish Adventure*
