Need to get a great home-cooked dinner on the table in a hurry? Our timesaving sauce make it easy to enjoy a savory, succulent braise – even on the busiest weeknights. Slow simmered to develop complex flavor, the sauce balances the mellow sweetness of caramelized onions with aged balsamic vinegar and earthy shiitake mushrooms, all rounded out with hearty Cabernet wine and fresh herbs.

Serve your braise with freshly cooked pasta or rice for a meal everyone will love.

Balsamic & Caramelized Onion Braised Chicken

Season a 4-lb. (2-kg) chicken, cut into 8 serving pieces, with salt and pepper. In a large fry pan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, warm 2 Tbs. oil until just smoking. Working in batches, brown the chicken on all sides. If using a slow cooker, transfer the chicken to the insert and add the braising sauce. Cover and cook on high until the chicken is fork-tender, about 2 hours. If using an oven, return all the chicken to the pot and add the braising sauce. Cover, transfer to a 350°F (180°C) oven and cook until the chicken is fork-tender, about 1 hour. Skim the fat off the sauce and serve.

Serves 4 to 6.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet, savory and delicious! Williams Sonoma’s Balsalmic & Caramelized Onion Braising Sauce creates a sweet and savory meal with ease. I braised a cut-up whole chicken in this delicious sauce and added carrot and celery before putting in the oven. In just one hour’s time, you have a delightful meal. Perfect blending of acidic Balsalmic vinegar (never overpowering) and gently sweet caramalized onions. Chicken is rendered extremely flavorful and highly moist. I served over mashed potatoes and crusty bread to soak up all the beautiful sauce. Wonderful winter meal!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! Our for WS Braising Sauce tried and it was so good that I order 3 more and some to share (with college student) :). Followed directions, used a crock pot...hours later the house smelled fantastic. It was delicious and the next night also over mashed potatoes! While everyone's taste varies, I would highly recommend this! Enjoy!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complex balanced flavor Saved this jar for a nice pork roast. Poured it over a boneless loin and cooked on low for about 6 hrs or so in the crock pot. It was like a restaurant meal! Made some spaetzle (from scratch) on the side & fresh green beans to spoon the gravy over. Fantastic!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor I used this sauce for the first time tonight. I'm usually a from-scratch cooker but love the idea of having a few back-up things in the pantry. Cut up whole chicken and browned it in my Cuisineart Multi-cooker. Poured in the sauce and cooked for about an hour. I did vary the cooking temp by starting at 350 then moving down to a simmer at 250 then back up at the end to 300. Fabulous flavor and the chicken was so tender. Made with Steamed haricot verts and roasted garlicky sea salt red potatoes. will make it again! next time will do more chicken breasts and thighs instead of a whole chicken cut-up. Had left-over sauce :-(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! I bought boneless skinless chicken thighs and browned them really good. Added just those and the sauce to a slow cooker on high for 4 hours and it was delicious. The meat was so tender and the sauce was nice and rich. Served it over rice.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from High hopes but not very good I'm a big fan of balsamic and carmelized onions in general andhave made my own sauce many times. I was excted to see this since it so easy! but the flavor just isn't very good. it tastes much better the next day as leftovers but right of the stove I found it didn't do much for the chicken and the sauce itself was a bit too sour. I couldn't really taste the onions at all (really too bad). I might venture to say this would taste better on beef but I'm not willing to try it again.
