"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!""
"The simple and few ingredients in this recipe combine to make a powerfully flavoured dish that is quick and easy to throw together. Both the chicken and the onions are moist and tender. It's perfect after a long day, as the dish pretty much takes care of itself. Yum! Thanks Toni!"
"This is a five star recipe all the way! I used bone-in, skinless thighs, browned them and then added the onion, vinegar, herbs and lots of black pepper. Turned out so good. This recipe will be repeated over and over in our home. Thanks so much for posting!"
"So simple and sooo yummy one of the family's favs."
"This was amazing! We used 3 skinless chicken thighs and added 1/2 lb chopped asparagus about 15 minutes before it was done. We had this on top of rice, but next time would just let it stand alone, or maybe serve it on top of a kohlrabi or celery root puree. Deeeeelicious!!!!!Thank you so much for posting! We'll eat this one often!!"
"i wanted more than anything for this to turn out. i love balsamic anything, i love onions, and i loves me somes chicken. but this was bland and mediocre at best. it smelled wonderful on the stove, they all came running "whats that smell" and that was the end of that. blah."
"make this all the time! easy and yummy. I add some chopped asparagus to the mix toward the end of the cooking time for a nice added crunch then serve over brown rice or cous cous."
"Very good. I made the chicken exactly as the recipe stated and served with buttery garlic noodles. My family liked it very much. This is going into my recipe file for future use. Thanks for sharing."
"I really enjoyed this dish. I added a twist. I added 3 finely chopped habanero Peppers and a bit of white wine. The sweet and the hot was great. It got warmer as the meal went on...Nice"
"Wonderful flavor and so easy to do. I used Apricot flavored Balsamic Vinegar. Even my DH who is not a fan liked this dish a lot. Since there was no amount or place to add I choose to omit the salt. I will be making this dish many more times."
"Love this way of preparing chicken thighs. I like to caramelize my onions for quite a bit longer than suggested, an extra 10-15 min. I also add extra balsamic. I like to serve it with couscous or quinoa and roasted broccoli. Thanks for a great, inexpensive staple."
"Absolutely fabulous!! I didn't use the parsley, and I forgot the last teaspoon of balsamic, but it was still fabulous. I used thighs with bones. So after done cooking, I took the meat off hte bones and stirred it into the relish. Then I mixed this sauce with the "Lemon Pasta recipe # 30596".. I used all the juice of a lemon accidently, and I made sure the lemon juice boiled for 30 seconds before whisking in the half and half so it wouldn't curdle. After mixing up the lemon pasta, I poured the Chicken sweet onion balsamic relish over it and stirred it and it was amazing! The sweetness of the chicken helped balance out the tartness of the lemon juice. I loved this. Thank you! UPDATE: Have made this several times. I usually serve with rice. We dont' eat a lot of meat but my kids love this one! They even eat the onions!"
"Very tasty and easy to do!"
"Great recipe...I was surprised how much sauce I ended up with....we really liked this."
"Thanks for this yummy recipe! I used a large yellow onion, boneless skinless chicken thighs, and forgot the salt & parsley - it still turned out great. This dish will be served in our house many more times!"
"We LOVED this!! Very easy to make, and YUMMY!! My hubby rated this an 8.5, which is a HUGE compliment! Thanks so much for sharing~~will definitely be making again! :O)"
"Very easy to make & excellent! The onions were beautifully carmelized & the chicken was moist & delicious. I thought the Balsamic (sauce) may be too sweet - but was pleasantly surprised - definately recommend!"
"This recipe is a winner! When the meat was cooked, I reduced the sauce over a higher heat - everybody loved it!"
