French Onion Chicken

Wait until you taste the gourmet flavors in this recipe. This is one dinner that might take a little bit longer than most recipes do, but the end result is so worth it.

It’s really just a matter of allowing the onions to sufficiently caramelize, just like you would with French Onion Soup. I actually like that I can measure out my other ingredients or prepare a side dish while the onions are busy caramelizing.

It’s definitely not a stressful or fast-paced meal to prepare, which is kind of nice. A good meal for a leisurely Sunday.

Chicken breasts before and after searing.

Heat olive oil and butter in the same skillet and use a silicone spatula to “clean” the fond on the bottom of the pot, this will add more flavor to the sauce. Add sliced onions.

Pro Tips

  • The soy sauce in this recipe can’t be tasted but adds umami and enhances the other flavors in this dish.
  • Mozzarella, Provolone, or Gruyere make great cheese toppings.
  • Chicken broth can be used instead of white wine if needed. 
  • Low Sodium Broth, soy sauce, and butter can be used to control the salt in this recipe. The beef bouillon can be omitted as well, but it does add a bit of rich flavor that makes the sauce similar to a gravy.
  • Chicken plumps up more when cooked so be sure to pound it thin.

Storage

Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
