  • Serve French Onion Chicken Bake with crusty bread or over cooked pasta to soak up the delicious sauce.

  • 4 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons 2 olive oil

  • 2 large 2 onions, thinly sliced

  • 2 cloves 2 garlic, minced

  • 2 cups 2 (480ml) beef broth

  • 1 tablespoon 1 all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 (120ml) dry white wine (optional)

  • 4 slices 4 Swiss cheese

  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Season the chicken breasts with salt and black pepper on both sides.
  • In a large oven-safe skillet or pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side or until they are lightly browned. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside.
  • In the same skillet, add the thinly sliced onions and cook over medium heat until they are caramelized and golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.
  • Stir in the minced garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute until fragrant.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the onions and stir to combine. Cook for 1-2 minutes to eliminate the raw flour taste.
  • Gradually add the beef broth and dry white wine (if using), stirring constantly to create a smooth sauce. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for another 2-3 minutes until it thickens slightly.
  • Return the browned chicken breasts to the skillet and nestle them into the onion sauce.
  • Top each chicken breast with a slice of Swiss cheese.
  • Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
  • Serve the French Onion Chicken Bake hot, and savor its savory comfort. Enjoy!
