“This is from IGA. This looks so good; hopefully I'll be able to try it soon. Since I keep I know there is a lactose free cooking cream that is considered pareve, which is good to keep in mind. There will be leftover sauce in the end, and you can use it for ice cream.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degree C (350 degree F).
  2. Season chicken breasts on both sides with pepper.
  3. Heat oil over medium high heat in an ovenproof pan. Sear chicken breasts for about 1 minute on each side, or until they are golden. Remove from pan and reserve.
  4. Add onion to the pan and saute, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes or until lightly golden. Add 2 tablespoons of water, scraping brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
  5. Place chicken breasts on the bed of onions and cover; cook in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until meat is no longer pink inside and internal temperature reaches 82 C (180 F). Season with salt to taste.
  6. In the meantime, bring cherry juice to boil in a small saucepan. Add chocolate; reduce heat to low and stir until chocolate is melted.
  7. Add cherries and vanilla and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Stir in cream and allow to simmer for about 2 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Keep warm.
  8. Serve chicken breasts on onions with the Black Forest sauce.
