Grilled Chicken with Sweet Onions -
While the chicken is hanging out, slice two yellow onions.
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil and add onions once skillet is hot. Add about 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt and 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper to the onions and combine.
Add 1-1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons orange marmalade to the onions and blend.
Add about 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar and another pinch of sea salt and cracked black pepper to the onions, cover and lower heat to medium-low and let the onions cook down and get sweet.
Heat a grill pan (or you can use the outdoor grill) to medium-high, coat the grill pan with a thin layer of extra virgin olive oil to prevent sticking. Once grill pan is heated, add chicken. Let the chicken cook for about 5 minutes before turning.
Continue cooking chicken until cooked completely through and golden brown. Check on the onions and stir occasionally. You will notice the onions are cooking down and becoming slightly thick with a syrup. Added bonus - heavenly aroma!
Plate the chicken and garish with chopped flat leaf parsley.
Serve the chicken with a heaping spoonful of he sweet onions. The combination of the sweet and savory will make you feel like there's a party going on in your mouth.
It's Wednesday...it's August and very hot...time to shake things up a bit!
