  • Lower heat, add onions to skillet and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until soft and pale golden, about 10 minutes.

  • Add garlic and 1 cup water to skillet and boil, stirring, 1 minute.

  • Transfer chicken with tongs to a serving dish. Add vinegar to sauce and boil, uncovered, mashing garlic with back of a spoon or a potato masher, until slightly thickened. Season sauce with salt and pepper and pour over chicken, then sprinlle with bacon.

    Oh my, this was so delicious! I used boneless/skinless chicken breasts so it cooked up very quickly, perfect for a week night meal! I used a little bit of chicken broth to make it more saucy since the vinegar reduced down a little too much. I can't wait to make this again and take a picture next time :)

    This was delicious and hearty. The only thing I added were some green peppers with the onion. Thank you for the recipe!

    Sounds great but I'm a little confused...#6 says to return chicken to skillet and the directions before that don't indicate adding the chicken...Am I missing something? Thanks Marriage...:)
