Balsamic Raspberry Chicken

Easy summer dinner!

This is really easy to make and one of my go-to recipes during the week. For the kids, I cut the chicken up and put the sauce separately on their plate and have them dip the chicken in, which seems to make it more appealing to them! Enjoy.
1 tsp. Vegetable oil
¼ cup chopped red onion
½ tsp. dried thyme
½ tsp. salt- divided
4 chicken breast halves
1/3 cup raspberry jam
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
¼ tsp. black pepper
Sauté the onion in the vegetable oil on medium high heat until soft, about 6 minutes. Meanwhile, season chicken with thyme and ¼ tsp. salt. Add chicken to the sauté pan with the onions and cook on each side until done, about 7 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan.

Reduce the heat to medium. Add the rest of the salt, jam, vinegar, and pepper. Stir constantly until the mixture melts into a sauce-like consistency. Spoon over chicken and serve!
