Chicken Thighs With Sweet Onion Balsamic Relish image

Based on a Cooking Light recipe, this has been modified to suit my own tastes. The sweet onions and balsamic vinegar create a lovely contrast in flavors that pair together so well. I usually serve this with couscous or brown rice with a green vegetable such as zucchini or spinach. Reheats well for lunch the next day.

I'm not a huge fan of chicken thighs, but this recipe changed my mind. The chicken was so moist and flavorful, and the relish was the perfect accompaniment.

This was my first time making chicken thighs and they turned out perfectly. The relish was also very easy to make and added a lot of flavor to the dish.

Overall, this was a good recipe. The chicken was cooked well and the relish was tasty. I would make it again, but I would probably reduce the amount of sugar in the relish.
