Balsamic Chicken with Thyme


Choose your love, love your choice. –President Thomas S. Monson

My friend Julie shared this easy, tasty recipe with me.  You probably have all the ingredients on hand:


  • ¼ cup flour
  • ¾ tsp each salt and pepper
  • 4 skinned, boneless chicken breasts halved
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large red onion – cut in half lengthwise, then thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves or ½ tsp dried thyme


1.         Mix flour and ½ tsp each salt and pepper on a plate.  Add chicken, turn to coat, shake off excess.

2.         In a heavy skillet heat oil over medium heat.  Add chicken and cook, turning once, 10 minutes or until browned and cook.  Remove to a plate and cover to keep warm.

3.         Add onion to skillet and sauté 1 – 2 minutes, until lightly browned.  Add broth, vinegar, thyme and remaining salt and pepper.  Bring to boil and book, stirring often – about 7 minutes (until onions are soft).

4.         To serve, place chicken on serving plates and spoon on onions and sauce.
