Onion Chicken in Balsamic Sauce

This is not a new recipe, in fact- it is an old faithful one that I had previously posted, but with poor pictures- it didn't do it justice. If you have't tried this yet- you are missing out BIG time- get on it, add it to this weeks meal plan- it's SOOOO good!
1 TBSP olive oil
1 sweet onion, chopped
4 chicken breasts
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes
S & P to taste

Preheat the oven to 350. In a large skillet over the stove, heat your oil and add your chopped onion and garlic and saute over med.-high heat for a few minutes until the onions are tender. Put washed chicken breasts in skillet and brown for a few minutes on each side. (NOTE: I cut my chicken breasts into about 6 big chunks, so that they soak up more of the goodness.) After it is browned on the stove, place the chicken & onions in a 9x13 baking dish. Heat the balsamic and chicken broth in the same skillet until it boils, let is simmer for a few, it will thicken some. Pour this mixture in your baking dish over your chicken, cut up your sun dried tomatoes and put them in (if they are whole, I cut then in half or thirds with kitchen scissors), then cover it with foil and pop it in the oven for 20- 30 minutes.
Serve with: it is almost a MUST to serve this dish with some sort of pasta/rice because it has so much wonderful juice, it really is great over a bed of pasta. I use the whole wheat or brown rice pasta from Trader Joe's and I make a green to go along side. ** This dish has been known to be a big hit with company- great to make for guests!

You will love it, I made it again this week! It's a fail proof and quick one that you will learn to go to when you're in a bind!
