This is an oldie.

Remember... Rotisserie Chicken is your Friend?

This is a yummy recipe (slightly adapted) from Pillsbury Best Ever Chicken July 2009.

I really liked this a lot. But I think I'm the only one!

I used sweet onions, but think it would have been better with a sharper onion. But that's just me!

I KNEW Jon and Bobby would want nothing at all to do with it.

So I made this for them.

Tawny ate it, but I don't think she was a big fan. She loves onions, but prefers them raw.

Mmmm.... love caramelized onions!

I'd make this again. It would make a nice party appetizer.

Wow, that looks delicious. I love caramelized onions in almost anything. And using chicken cooked by someone else is a great idea.

I made this for my family on Friday night and man oh man was it DELICIOUS! My kids were like yours and stuck with the plain old cheese version, but my husband and I felt like we were eating at a gourmet pizza place.

Thanks for a great recipe!
