  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. This is so incredible!! My 3yo son who detests onions love this. He cant wait for daddy to come home to eat lunch... Its right at the table waiting to be devoured. Just recently we had to change our diet due to my DH's high cholesterol (277). And this recipe proves that food doesn't have to be high in fat to be good... Thanks for sharing dancer!
  5. This has a real nice tang to it. The balsamic vinegar gives it an unusual flavor. Normally I would just saute' some onions in butter. The main focus of this dish is the onions. I agree with justcallmetoni that there wasn't enough. Next time I will double the onions stuff!!! I figured this out to be 3 WW points. I served it with recipe #151408 and green beans. A bit on the high side of points for WW, but if you keep the rest of the daily points low it works out great. Dancer, thanks ever so much for posting this great dish.
