If you love French onion soup, you need to try this French onion chicken recipe! It has all the flavors of the French onion soup, only better! The chicken goes so well in that onion sauce and it’s perfect to serve over pasta. It’s one of those 30 minute chicken dinners that feels super fancy, yet super easy to make.
Start by seasoning the chicken with salt, pepper, onion peel powder (or onion powder) and oregano on both sides.
Use chicken breast or boneless chicken thighs for this recipe. Either works great!
Once seasoned, you’ll sear the chicken in butter on both sides until golden (not cooked through).
Remove the chicken from the pan and to the same skillet add in some more butter and about 5 onions thinly sliced.
Cook the onions over medium heat until golden and soft. Then add in 2 tablespoons of flour and sautee the flour with the onions for 2 minutes. Add in some fresh herbs (optional–thyme, oregano or use 1 teaspoon dried spice).
Now add in 2 cups of chicken stock and cook the sauce until it thickens up.
Add the chicken back into the onion sauce and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes for the chicken to cook all the way through and absorb all the flavors of the onion soup sauce.
Top the chicken with cheese (your favorite).
You can cover the chicken for 3 minutes over low heat until the cheese melts or place the skillet under a low broiler to melt the cheese.
At that point the chicken is ready to serve –ENJOY!
