Ingredients

  • ·
    8 medium, boneless, skinless, chicken thighs
  • ·
    2 large onions, cut into rings and separated
  • ·
    4 tablespoons real butter
  • ·
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ·
    3/4 cup water
  • ·
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ·
    1 teaspoon black pepper

How to Make BONNIE'S BRAISED CHICKEN WITH SAUTEED ONIONS

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse the chicken thighs, remove any fat and blot with paper towels. Just before adding the thighs to the skillet, sprinkle each thigh with coarse ground black pepper and kosher salt. Heat the butter in a medium high skillet (stainless steel or cast iron) Don't let it smoke or it will burn.
  2. Sear 4 thighs at a time. Sear the thighs until they are golden brown on each side. Don't move them until they form a crust. This takes about 2-3 minutes each side on medium-high heat. If the chicken sticks to the pan, it’s not ready to be turned yet. Wait until it releases. Remove the chicken thighs to a platter. Tent with foil to keep warm. Don't wipe out the pan!
  3. Add the onion rings and cook them until they are tender, about 10 minutes. Then add cornstarch to the water, whisk until it is smooth and then add it to the cooked onions and stir it in.
  4. Return the braised thighs to the pan. Turn the heat down to low, and cover the thighs to let them simmer slowly, until they are moist and tender and the onion sauce has thickened. This takes about 25 minutes.
  5. Serve on a platter with the sauce drizzled over the top. Good with rice or mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
