Too be honest, I always try to avoid cooking with chicken. Though I have no problems eating it when it’s been cooked by someone else. It’s just that once I know that there is some danger involved, I immediately get scared and back out. Which is plainly ridiculous, since I am missing out on so many opportunities to cook with this versatile ingredient. Besides that, it is so incredibly easy to prepare!
That’s why I decided to get real, face my fears, and just do it. This particular dish is actually somewhat based on a tapas dish which I once ate -no idea when and where though. The tapas dish was made with chorizo, instead of chicken. But I figured that it would go perfectly well with the chicken. Which it did! The balsamic vinegar provides the acidity in this recipe, while the sugar caramelizes along with the onion, which adds an extra sweet dimension. By having so many flavours brought together, I find it important to have a somewhat neutral sidedish, which is why I chose the oven roasted potatoes. You could also pair it with rice, or noodles for instance.
If I can be quite fair, the balsamic vinegar doesn’t really do much for the chicken’s appearance. But it’s the inside that counts, isn’t it? So try it, and let me know what you think!

This looks great!! I pretty much always cook with chicken because it’s so versatile, so I’ll have to try this.
It really is! I am going to start cooking it more. Let me know how it turned out :)!
