Red Wine Caramelised Onion with Chickpea and Chicken Salad



what do you do when you have some red wine left? I was sautéing some red onions for a salad recently and decided to pour the rest of the red wine in the pan. I was happily surprised by the result as the onions has such a rich flavour to it! Toss it through with chickepeas and some chicken (although I reckon left over roast beef will do very well in this salad), it made a good hearty meal.



Red Wine Caramelised Onion with Chickpea and Chicken Salad
1/4 cup of red wine
1 onion sliced
1 can of chick pea
left over bbq chicken shredded
2 cups of baby spinach leaves

Saute red onions. Add red wine and leave it to simmer for around 5-10 mins till it becomes a nice sticky mess. Toss it through with some warmed up chickpeas and chicken. Pour mixture on to bed of baby spinach leaves. Enjoy!

Besides using it in cooking, chickpea is a healthy snack too by just boiling it.

That's a great way to use up your red wine.

What a great idea! I have a bit of red wine that's been sitting in my fridge for a bit, and this sounds like a great way to spice up some onions for a salad. Thanks for passing on your idea. :)
