Caramelized Onion Chicken

Photo: Randy Mayor
Prep time 7 mins
Cook time 16 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces chicken and 1 tablespoon sauce)
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.

  • 1 pound chicken breast tenders
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
