READY IN: 45mins




  • Preheat oven to 180 degree C (350 degree F).
  • Season chicken breasts on both sides with pepper.
  • Heat oil over medium high heat in an ovenproof pan. Sear chicken breasts for about 1 minute on each side, or until they are golden. Remove from pan and reserve.
  • Add onion to the pan and saute, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes or until lightly golden. Add 2 tablespoons of water, scraping brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Place chicken breasts on the bed of onions and cover; cook in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until meat is no longer pink inside and internal temperature reaches 82 C (180 F). Season with salt to taste.
  • In the meantime, bring cherry juice to boil in a small saucepan. Add chocolate; reduce heat to low and stir until chocolate is melted.
  • Add cherries and vanilla and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in cream and allow to simmer for about 2 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Keep warm.
  • Serve chicken breasts on onions with the Black Forest sauce.
