Garlicky Chicken with Onions

Garlicky Chicken with Onions recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

While I was making the Chicken Vegetable and Potato Soup last week, I tasted the chicken after it has finished in the skillet. It was delicious all by itself! So, I made the chicken again this week, as a meal on it's own. After the chicken finished, I used this method to quickly saute some squash in the same pan with the remaining juices.

I'm frequently surprised by the way that just a few simple everyday ingredients work together to turn typically boring chicken into something so tasty. I am sure to be making this again in the future for simple, quick and easy meals. Served with potatoes or over rice, this was enjoyed by every member of my family.

Garlicky Chicken with Onions
(printable recipe)

1 medium yellow onion
4 large cloves garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 lb chicken, white or dark meat, diced into 1/2" pieces
kosher salt, to taste
generous freshly cracked black pepper, to taste

Warm the oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add the onions and saute for about 5 minutes, just until browned and tender. Add the garlic and cook for a minute or so. Add the chicken, toss to combine and season generously with salt and pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until browned and just barely cooked through. Remove from the heat and serve hot. Enjoy!

  1. Any recipe that starts with "Garlicky" has my immediate attention. This sounds delicious and I really like your creativity.

  2. Love the side of squash. I often do simple chicken and onion stirfrys and throw in some broccoli at the end.
