Chicken with Pear and Red Onion Sauce

Sena Wilson


My husband is very fond of chicken...cooked in any form! I am fond of fruit and sauces in most any form. This recipe was created using all three of those ingredients. It has a sweet flavor with a touch of spice from the Sesame Oil. Serve it with plain rice or Skillet Confetti Corn (fresh).
