We all get addicted to those Facebook recipes we see. I sure know I am! Sometimes I think there’s a magic fairy who automatically pops up stuff that I’d most likely like. Seriously….
So I seen this recipe someone else shared. I don’t know who has snap chat but there’s these different filters….where it changes your voice and makes your eyes real big. That was me.
Folks…it was a French Onion Chicken recipe. Guys….I love me some French onion soup. You KNOW I had to click this recipe! I seriously could not resist the click. It looked so good on the page. I’ll admit though mine didn’t look nearly as pretty as Le Crème De La Crumb . It means I have to remake it though, because the other recipe looks rich and amazing. Mine just looks like chicken in onion gravy. However, it was good. I’ll make it again for sure. I encourage you to use the original recipe that Le Crème De La Crumb has on their webpage. It’s good folks! Ya’ll go eat up!
medium yellow onions, thinly sliced into rings
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup plus 3 tablespoons beef broth, divided
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness
1 tablespoon oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons flour
4 slices provolone cheese
4 slices swiss cheese
¾ cup shredded parmesan cheese
fresh thyme or parsley and cracked black pepper for topping
(directions taken from the blog mentioned above)
- Preheat oven to bake at 400 degrees OR broil on low. In a large oven-safe skillet (see note) over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add onions and 3 tablespoons beef broth and saute onions for 3-4 minutes until translucent. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally so the onions don’t burn, for about 15 minutes longer until browned and very tender. Use tongs or a fork to transfer to a bowl and cover to keep warm.
- While onions are cooking, prepare the chicken by drizzling with oil, then seasoning with salt and pepper (to taste) and Italian herbs. Once onions have finished cooking and are removed from the pan, cook chicken for 4-5 minutes on each side (don’t clean out the pan between the onions and chicken) until browned on both sides. (Chicken may not be fully cooked through yet, that is okay).
- Transfer chicken to a plate and cover to keep warm and return the onions to the pan. Sprinkle flour over the onions and stir for 1 minute over medium-high heat. Add beef broth and continue to cook, stirring throughout, until mixture comes to a boil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Return chicken to pan and spoon some of the sauce over each piece of chicken.
- Top chicken with one slice of provolone each, then one slice of swiss, then ¼ of the parmesan cheese. Transfer skillet to your preheated oven and cook for about 10 minutes until chicken is cooked through completely and cheeses are melted.
- Spoon some of the onions and gravy over the top of the chicken, garnish with thyme or parsley and cracked black pepper, and serve.
