Balsamic Pear Chicken

  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • ½ onion, sliced
  • 1 pear, sliced
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or tenders
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1.5 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Melt one tablespoon of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken, and then remove from the pan.

Melt second tablespoon of butter and add onions. Sauté until translucent, and then deglaze the pan with ½ cup chicken stock (or white wine, if preferred), scraping up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Add the vinegar and pear slices; toss to coat.

Whisk the cornstarch into one cup of chicken stock (or water). Pour into pan and bring to a boil. Return the chicken to the pan and cook until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the sauce is slightly thickened.
