1
red onion, chopped
14

apple cider vinegar
(60
mL)
14
cup
chicken stock

Directions

  1. Rinse chicken, pat dry, season with salt and pepper.

  4. Add vinegar and continue cooking, scraping up the pan drippings and stirring.
  5. Add chicken stock, syrup and additional pepper to taste. Cook until thickened, approximately 1 minute.
  6. Chop walnuts, if desired. Add chicken back into the pan, along with walnuts, and baste with sauce. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Garnish, if desired, and serve.
