Chicken with Caramelized Onions in Butter, Lemon, and White Wine
Cook time
Total time
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes (or ¼ teaspoon if you don't like it too spicy)
  • 5 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 onions, sliced thinly
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • ½ cup white wine (or chicken broth if you don't want to use alcohol)
  • fresh or dried parsley (for garnish)
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Rub the chicken breasts with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Place on a lined and/or greased baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
  2. While the chicken is cooking, heat your butter in a skillet, then add your onions. Let them sweat for 5 minutes or so, then add in the minced garlic. Cook for another 5 minutes, then add in the lemon juice and white wine. Cook for another 5 to 10 minutes until the liquid has reduced and the onions are caramelized and a beautiful golden brown. If the chicken finishes cooking before the onions are ready, remove them from the oven and cover with tinfoil until you're ready to plate.
  3. Place the chicken on a plate and top generously with the onions and the sauce in the pan. Serve with vegetables, rice, egg noodles, or whatever you like!
