Flavored vinegars tenderize the chicken while imparting a distinctive muskiness. Oregano intensifies the effect in this chicken and onion saute with balsamic gravy.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into bite size pieces
- 2 large onions, quartered
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons dried oregano
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
In a large skillet, heat oil and saute chicken strips over high heat until no longer pink and juices run clear. Remove chicken from skillet and place on a plate.
Peel onion layers apart. Add onions to skillet and saute over low heat for 15 minutes, until they are translucent. Add the reserved chicken strips, balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar and oregano and cook for 5 more minutes.
Add the flour and stir into the mixture to thicken. Heat through 2 minutes longer, remove from heat and serve.
