Chicken Thighs With Sweet Onion Balsamic Relish

Based on a Cooking Light recipe, this has been modified to suit my own tastes. The sweet onions and balsamic vinegar create a lovely contrast in flavors that pair together so well. I usually serve this with couscous or brown rice with a green vegetable such as zucchini or spinach. Reheats well for lunch the next day.

Delicious recipe. We cooked the chicken first then the onions, then put the chicken back in and did the rest. Was very good.

This is a great dish! I love that you can throw the chicken in raw, some days I need as few steps as possible :) I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for posting!

The whole family RAVED about this meal! I had a package of boneless skinless chicken thighs that I had thawed out unsure of exactly what I intended to do with them. This recipe was so incredibly easy and quick that it was on the table with some oriental noodles (they cook faster than regular pasta) and a garden salad in no time. As my 10-year old son said, "Mom, this one's a keeper!"
