Recipe: Garlic Butter Chicken with Caramelized Onions
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, flattened a bit with a meat tenderizer
1/2 cup butter (preferably grass-fed, pastured) or ghee
4 cloves garlic
1 TBSP lard or olive oil
1 onion, sliced thin
optional: 1 TBSP honey
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lay chicken breasts in a 9×13 pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a small saucepan, melt butter on low, then add garlic and let cook until garlic is tender (about 7-8 minutes). While that’s cooking, heat the oil or lard in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add in sliced onions and cook until caramelized (about 8-10 minutes), then stir in the 1 TBSP honey, if desired. Pour butter and garlic over the chicken. Then top with caramelized onions. Cover gently with foil and bake for about 20-25 minutes. Remove foil the last 5 minutes, switch oven to broil, and cook until chicken is done and juices run clear. Oh, that buttery goodness is sooooo yummy.
