Good recipe. Really enjoyed the onions. When it says repeat procedure with remaining broth I wasn't sure if that meant step 5 and 6 or just 6, but I just kept adding a bit of broth and letting it evaporate. Tasty!

Nice spices on the chicken. For my tastes, the balsamic vinegar was a bit over powering and I used a bit less than 1/4 cup. I will definitely make this again with just a bit less vinegar. Thanks for the recipe!

Loved this recipe I did add more red papper and cut back on the balsamic. I cut the chicken breast to stir fry size. Prepared the onions earlier in the day and then it just took minutes to finish the recipe . This is a keeper for sure Thanks Dancer
