3 chicken breasts, slightly flattened
a smallish onion
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp honey
dash lime juice
black pepper
garlic salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange a bed of sliced onion chunks in the baking pan of your choice. Flatten the chicken breasts a little. Stir together butter, honey, and lime juice; coat chicken in the resulting fluid. If you think the breasts go on the onions now, you’re right. Sprinkle remaining ingredients on the chicken. Bake for 30 minutes, basting occasionally, or until internal temp is 165 degrees.

“Basted in its own juices” is a really gross-sounding phrase for a delicious cooking process.

Oh, and you should eat the onions. They’re not merely decorative. You can steam a green vegetable, then toss in the onions after the baking part is done, and top with parmesan cheese. Or, the next day, shred the leftover chicken, then pile it with the onions on buttered bread for a chicken and onion sandwich.
