Chicken Breasts with Tomatoes, Caramelized Onions, and Feta Cheese

The MRI went well today and I look forward to hearing what is going on with my back and what steps I need to take to heal and be pain free. Since I am not able to cook new recipes right now I decided to re-visit some of my old favorites.  I hope to be back to cooking and photographing new recipes soon!

I love the combination of flavors and textures in this dish… the tomatoes and caramelized onions are sweet while the feta is a bit salty and they taste terrific over chicken. Topping the whole dish off with a bit of balsamic vinegar just completes it perfectly. This healthy and delicious recipe was a big hit with my entire family. This chicken paired nicely with the Roasted Asparagus with Browned Butter, Soy, and Balsamic Sauce[1].

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions then saute, stirring often, until golden brown and caramelized – about 15-20 minutes. Season with sea salt, to taste

In large grill pan, heat the other tablespoon of olive oil over medium high heat and season the chicken breasts with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and garlic powder, to taste. Make sure pan is nice and hot before adding the chicken. Cook for 5-6 minutes before turning over. Cook for additional 3-4 minutes to desired degree of doneness. Remove from heat to a serving platter. Make sure to let the chicken rest for 3-5 minutes before slicing so it stays nice and juicy. Slice into thin strips at an angle once it has rested.

In the same skillet as the onions, add the grape tomatoes then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the tomatoes are soft. Add the caramelized onions and minced garlic, stirring frequently for 60 seconds. Pour the tomatoes and onions on top of the sliced chicken, drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Top with feta cheese and fresh basil. Enjoy!

Caramelized Onion and Swiss Cheese Twice Baked Potatoes

by Pam on November 6, 2012

Twice baked potatoes are always a delicious and tasty side dish.  I decided to make simply seasoned twice baked potatoes topped with some caramelized onion and a little shredded Swiss cheese.  They turned out so delicious – my husband and I both loved them.  My son opted for only Swiss cheese on his and my daughter (who doesn’t like cheese) wanted a plain one. I served these potatoes with Apricot-Soy Pork Chops[1] and Asparagus with Dijon Vinaigrette[2] for a delicious meal.  I think I will be serving these with my traditional Christmas prime rib dinner… they are elegant, easy, and delicious – you can’t beat that!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Wash the potatoes then poke holes throughout the potato with a fork or knife.  Place into the oven and bake for 60 minutes, or until cooked through.  Remove from the oven and let them cool.

While the potatoes are baking, make the caramelized onions.  Place the oil into a skillet over medium heat.  Add the sliced onions and cook, stirring often, for 25-30 minutes, or until caramelized and golden brown. Side Note: If the skillet gets dry, add a tablespoon of water or two.  Season with sea salt, to taste, and a splash of vinegar.  Remove from the skillet and set aside.

When potatoes are done cooking, allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and gently scoop out the flesh into a mixing bowl (set skins aside). Add sour cream,  butter, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Mix thoroughly then spoon mixture into the potato skins. Top each potato with the caramelized onions then sprinkle the top with a bit of shredded Swiss cheese.

Place them back into the oven for a few minutes until the cheese has melted.  Serve immediately.  Enjoy.
