About this recipe: Here, savoury sautéed chicken breasts are paired with sweetly cooked onions and a fresh rosemary and thyme sauce. Spinach tagliatelle makes a good accompaniment.
*Use caramelised onions to top a homemade pizza, or stuff into pitta pockets along with fresh vegetables for a vegetarian sandwich. Or just serve as a side dish.
*Replace the chicken breasts with boneless pork loin chops or turkey breast fillets.
*Does chopping onions make you cry? Blame it on the sulphuric compounds in the vegetable. One remedy is to leave the root end intact; this is where the compounds are concentrated. Or freeze the onion for 20 minutes before cutting, to inhibit the chemical release.
Caramelising the onions produces a rich flavour, and makes them much more palatable. The same cooking process can bring out the best flavour in other vegetables, such as peppers and carrots.
