Caramelized Onion ChickenRecipe

Raspberry jam, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, and a couple of seasonings create a rich sauce for the chicken. This recipe is low in fat, easy to whip together, and most of the ingredients can be found in your pantry. If you don't have raspberry jam, red currant, apple, or seedless blackberry jam can stand in for great results. Sautéed green beans make a great side dish for this sweet, spicy onion chicken.
