  • Cut the top and bottom off of the onion and peel back the skin. Cut the onion in half lengthwise, then slice into thin strips.
  • Add the onions to a medium saucepan along with the butter and simmer over medium heat for approximately 5 minutes.
  • Once the onions have started to soften, add the chicken broth and reduce heat to low. Simmer approximately 15 minutes until the onions become translucent; stirring every 5 minutes.
  • Add the ketchup, oregano, salt and pepper and simmer for another 15 minutes. Serve hot. Can be prepared up to three days ahead of time and kept refrigerated.


*Water or vegetable broth can be substituted for the chicken broth.
