Baked Onions with Chicken — recipe for a hearty treat straight from the oven

Onion is an ingredient that should never be missing from a hearty meal. It has an unmistakable taste that gives our food some extra zing. But today's recipe needs more than "just a few onions" for the best flavors and aromas. So how are we going to do that? With bacon and barbecue sauce, of course!

You'll need (for 6 portions):

Here's how:

  1. Shred the chicken breasts into small pieces. Cut into the onions and remove their outer rings. You'll need these later.
  2. Dice the inside of the onions and lightly sauté them in some oil. Add the ketchup, paprika, curry powder, cayenne pepper and honey and mix everything together.
  3. Add the sauce to the shredded chicken breast with the mozzarella and green onions. 
  4. Use your hands to shape the mixture into balls and press them into the onion rings. Wrap each onion with two strips of bacon in the shape of a cross. The strips of bacon need to cover the openings in the onion rings. Use a skewer to hold the bacon in place. To finish, spread barbecue sauce on the onions and bake them at 355°F for 20 minutes.

While baking, your onions will fill the kitchen with wonderful aromas that'll make your stomach start to growl. Once done, you'll find they really pack a punch with a fantastic flavor explosion! By the way, you can also cook your stuffed onions on the barbecue when warmer weather returns.
