Pollo Bianco

Pollo Bianco

Annmarie Olscamp

Caramelized onions create a glazed chicken with a mellowed bite. This is a great chicken recipe that I learned from my grandmother. It is simple and tastes delicious! If desired, serve with roasted potatoes which have been coated with the sauce.

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and add the chicken, browning both sides of each piece. Saute for approximately 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Add the diced onion/s to the skillet and stir together with the chicken pieces for approximately 5 minutes. Add 2 cups of water and let simmer on medium high heat until the onions caramelize and create a sauce.
  3. Simmer for approximately 30 minutes. You may need to add more water so that the sauce mixture doesn't dry out. Once the chicken is cooked through, remove and set on a plate.

If I could give this recipe 10 stars I would! This was FABULOUS : ) I just made this last night, although I did make some slight changes. I used chicken breasts, instead of thighs, and increased the olive oil to 3 Tbls. I also seasoned the chicken liberally (before browning in oil) with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I also cooked the onions much longer than the recipe stated (about 13 minutes) because I like to get my onions really carmalized and bring out their flavor-be careful not to burn them! I served the chicken with oven roasted potatoes as suggested (I used yukon gold potatoes, quarted them, and tossed them with olive oil, cumin, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika-baked at 475 degrees for 20 minutes) and I did toss the potatoes with the onion mixture. Very, very simple and it tastes out of this world! Do not be fooled by it's simplicity, and do not hesitate to add your own spices as this recipe is a wonderful base that can be adjusted to suit any palate. A +++++

I tried this recipe twice. I liked it. Although, The second time I added a few dashes of spices like:garlic powder, paprika, chicken bouillion, & turmeric during the simmer stage. It made the recipe taste even better!

this is REALLY good. I chopped the thighs into small pieces and seasoned them first w/ paprika, garlic, soul seasoning, & pepper. made according to directions. 5 min before finishing I added 1.5 Tablespoons of flour to 1 cup sour cream and added it to the sauce. OH, it's sooo good!
