French Onion Chicken is the absolute bomb. It is tender chicken breasts in a creamy onion sauce made in a skillet . So Easy to make and incredible it is definitely a new favorite.
French Onion Chicken
This chicken makes for a perfect weeknight dinner. Only taking about 30 minutes to make helps if you are short on time. Serve it with The Best 1 WW Point Asparagus and Loaded Mashed Potato Bake or what ever your favorite side dishes are. We are definitely big chicken eaters in this house and this recipe is so good. The chicken comes out so tender and flavorful. With onions and provolone cheese - yum.
If you have anyone in your household that doesn't eat onions, this probably wont be their favorite meal. It is packed full of fresh cooked onions. I have a son who is a grown man that will not go anywhere near onions. Over all he is not a picky eater at all . He likes most everything except onions. My hubby and I however love them , this chicken tastes almost like French onion soup with the flavorful sauce and cheese on top. The recipe that I used for inspiration for this dish I found at therecipecritic.com/ . I did make a few changes .
