This recipe was inspired by my current kick "caramelized onions" and a trip to the grocery store. As my wife and I cruised the local grocery store aisles, I spotted a bargain on limes (3 for a buck). So we bought 3. After getting back home I started thinking about how I could make something simple from the lime, chicken tenders and your guessed it "caramelized onions. The result was a very delicious chicken dish, which when accompanied by cole slaw and a baked potato makes a great meal for 2. The recipe is shown below, complete with the recipe for making the caramelized onion
