    Cooking spray
    4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, about 5 ounces each
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Salt-free roasted garlic seasoning (recommended: McCormick)
    .5 tablespoon olive oil
    .5 cup thinly sliced onion
    1 jalapeno or serrano peppers, seeded and minced
    1 tablespoons sugar
    .5 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
    1 bay leaves
    1 teaspoons cornstarch
    1 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves


Heat a stove-top grill pan or griddle to medium high heat and coat with cooking spray. Remove chicken from package and place on a plastic cutting board. Season both sides of chicken with salt, black pepper and garlic seasoning. Using tongs add chicken to hot pan and cook 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

Heat large skillet over medium-high heat with oil. Add onion, jalapeno and sugar and cook 5 to 7 minutes stirring occasionally with a spoon, until golden brown. Add 1/3 cup of the chicken broth and bay leaf and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes. Pour remaining chicken broth into a bowl. Whisk in cornstarch until it is completely dissolved and add to the pan. Bring onion mixture to a full boil, reduce heat and simmer until the sauce thickens. Using tongs, discard the bay leaf and remove the pan from heat.

Serve 2 of the chicken breast halves with all of the onion sauce spooned over top and all of the rice on the side. Reserve remaining 2 chicken breast halves for sandwiches.
