French Onion Chicken Skillet

French Onion Soup is one of those dishes that I didn’t like as a kid but I love it now. It sounded really good for dinner, but I also wanted chicken. French Onion Chicken Casserole, it is! You can make the caramelized onions in a crockpot or InstaPot if you don’t want to babysit them on the stovetop. 

⅓ cup Butter

3 cups Onion; chopped

4 cloves Garlic; minced

1 teaspoon dried Thyme

Salt and Pepper to taste

2 Tablespoons Cornstarch

4 cups Beef Broth

1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2 Tablespoons Marsala Wine

4 large Chicken Breasts

4 slices Swiss Cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat and melt the butter. Add the onions and stir until caramelized; about 40 minutes. 
  3. Add in the garlic and continue to cook until fragrant. Remove the onions from the skillet and add a drizzle of olive oil. Increase the heat to medium-high and season the chicken with salt and pepper before searing on both sides. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Return the onions to the skillet and season with salt, pepper and thyme. Sprinkle in the cornstarch, then pour in the broth and bring to a boil. Stir until thickened before adding the chicken back into the skillet and coating it with the French onion gravy. 
  5. Top the chicken with a slice of cheese and bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F.
  6. Enjoy!
