  • 4 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Several dashes bottled hot pepper sauce
  • Fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Prepare the oven broiler.
  2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and then place on a broiler pan.
  3. Put the pan into the oven and cook for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove the pan from the oven, flip the chicken and add the sliced onion after brushing with oil. Place the pan back into the oven for 15 minutes and cook at 180 degrees.
