making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

Baked Dijon Chicken Breasts with Sautéed Veggies
For the chicken:
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
Juice from 1 fresh lemon
1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup chicken stock or dry white wine
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley, for garnish

For the veggies:
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 zucchini or Summer Squash, sliced into 1/4" rounds
1/2 yellow or sweet onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper, to taste

Steamed white rice, for serving (optional)
Make the chicken: Preheat your oven to 400 F.

Combine the oil, mustard, garlic, lemon juice and paprika in a small bowl.

Arrange the chicken breasts in a glass baking dish. Season generously with salt and pepper. Drizzle mustard sauce over the chicken breasts, making sure to coat the top of all the chicken pieces. Pour the wine or stock into the bottom of the baking dish.

Bake until the chicken's juices run clear (about 20-30 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts). Remove from oven, cover with foil, and let rest while you make the veggies.

To make the veggies, heat a skillet to medium-high. Add oil, onion and zucchini and sauté for 4-5 minutes, until the onions are beginning to brown and the squash is tender but not mushy. Add garlic and cook for one minute more. Remove from heat.

To serve, add a scoop of rice to a plate and top with some veggies and a chicken breast. Spoon some of the sauce from the baking dish over the chicken and garnish with parsley.
