Chicken With Onions 

Over the holiday, my oven turned off. I had all my food prepared and ready to pop in the oven and we were expecting guests for lunch as well.

Fortunately my stove burners were lit. I needed to improvise quickly and change my menu.

I made this recipe for the first time and it came out great! A definite keeper.


1 chicken, skinned 

3 onions, thinly sliced

1 tablespoon fat, I used chicken fat

1 6 oz can of tomatoe paste

1 cup broth or water

Salt, pepper and fresh garlic to taste


Sauté onions in fat until cooked. I used chicken fat, as I happened to have some leftover from another dish that I made over the holiday. It was a definite flavor enhancer!

Add chicken to pot. Stir tomato paste and broth to blend together and pour over chicken. I had leftover chicken soup. 

Add spices.

Bring to a boil and simmer until done. 

This can be made in the oven, crockpot or pressure cooker, 7 minutes to pressure.

Here is a picture:

Simple and delicious!
