2 large onions
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons Blueberry Preserves
Salt and Pepper
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon butter or margarine
5 sprigs fresh thyme
½ teaspoon sugar
¼ cup chicken stock
Salt and pepper chicken breasts and brown on stove for 4 minutes on each side. Add 3 sprigs of thyme and finish cooking in 350 degree oven for about 25 minutes (until internal temperature reaches 170 degrees). While chicken is cooking, slice onions thinly. Heat olive oil and butter until melted, add onions and cook until dark brown, stir frequently to avoid burning. Being careful to keep your face away, slowly add the vinegar. Let it cook down for 1-2 minutes. Add preserves, 2 sprigs of thyme, sugar, chicken stock, salt, and pepper. Stir and cook until bubbly. Spoon over chicken.
Mix all together, place in oven for 20-30 minutes until heated through or in crock-pot 2-4 hours.
