Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Chicken
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.Advertisement
Preheat a grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate. Spray chicken breasts with cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. Grill chicken until grill marks appear on the outsides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to the lined baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove chicken, set aside, and increase oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Heat a flat-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Add vegetable oil and onion. Cook, stirring often, until onion begins to brown, 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking and stirring until onion is very tender and dark brown, about 25 minutes more.
Season onion with salt and add vinegar; cook until vinegar absorbed, about 3 minutes. Top chicken with the onions. Crumble goat cheese on top and sprinkle with lemon zest and lavender. Drizzle honey on top.
Return chicken to the oven and bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of the chicken reads 165 F (74 degrees C) and goat cheese is lightly toasted, 8 to 10 minutes more.
If the onions begin to burn, take them off the heat and rest. Once onions have rested, scrape the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon to clean up and return the pan to the heat.
