2 servings (serving size: 2 thighs and 1 cup onion mixture)

The chicken is smothered in a thick onion sauce; serve it over mashed potatoes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon salt; sauté for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/8 teaspoon salt, chicken, oregano, and marjoram to pan, and sprinkle with 3 teaspoons vinegar. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes or until chicken is done. Uncover, increase heat, and cook 2 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Stir in 1 teaspoon vinegar, and sprinkle with the parsley. Serve with lemon wedges.

Have made this many times, and we always like it. I may try browning the chicken, though, as it stays a bit pale. I normally sprinkle some paprika and turmic on for color, but browned would probably be better and add a carmelized taste. Like to serve with polenta and a green vegetable.

Good, quick mid-week recipe. I will add one more onion next time since we would've liked more in the sauce to drape over the chicken. Used a mix of chicken thighs and breasts. Next time, I would just use thighs since the breast meat wasn't as juicy. I like the sauce thicker so I added a little flour/cornstarch to thicken it up.

I have made this many times, served over mashed potatoes as the recipe suggests, and it is always delicious.

I didn't follow the recipe to the letter and it still turned out very good. I would make it again. I served it over egg noodles, but I think the mashed potatoes which were suggested would have been a much better choice. Next time.
