The flavors of hearty French onion soup pair with tender, juicy chicken breasts in this recipe. Chicken gets smothered in rich, sweet caramelized onions and Gruyère cheese before being baked to perfection in the oven.
This dish can be made with chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts – just increase the cook time so the thighs get cooked through. The onions take quite a bit of time to cook, but it's easy to make them in advance, store them in the fridge and add them to the chicken when you're ready to make dinner. From there, the meal will be on the table in less than 30 minutes.
