This 30-minute dish capitalizes on the rich sweetness of caramelizing the onions a bit before adding the balsamic vinegar, honey and Worcestershire. Italian staples, rosemary and balsamic vinegar pair well even when applied to separate ingredients. Make it a one-pan meal by searing some green beans in the pan with the onions. Simply remove them once they are bright green, just before the vinegar and honey are added. Try this recipe with pork tenderloin for a delicious switch. Make leftover chicken and onions into tasty lettuce wrap filling for a workday or weekend lunch.
