Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Cut the onion into 1/2-inch slices. Heat a medium pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then the onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 3-4 min. Add 1 tsp sugar (dbl for 4 ppl) and season with salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are dark golden-brown, 3-4 min. Remove the pan from the heat.


While the onions caramelize, pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then the chicken. Sear, until chicken is golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet.


Top chicken with the caramelized onions and sprinkle with cheese. Roast in the middle of the oven, until chicken is cooked through, 15-17 min.**


While the chicken roasts, cut the broccoli and cauliflower mix into bite-sized pieces. Peel, then mince or grate the garlic. Heat the same pan (from step 2) over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) and swirl pan until melted, 30 sec. Add broccoli and cauliflower mix and 2 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl). Stir together. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 3-4 min. Add the garlic and lemon-pepper seasoning. Stir to combine, until fragrant, 1 min. Remove from heat.
