Ingredients: For the Caramelized Onions:

4 large onions, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar
Salt and pepper to taste

For the Chicken and Noodle Casserole:

2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
8 oz egg noodles, cooked according to package instructions
1 cup Gruyère cheese, shredded
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup beef broth
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
In a large skillet, melt butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add thinly sliced onions, sugar, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are deeply caramelized and golden brown. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked chicken, cooked egg noodles, Gruyère cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Mix well and transfer the mixture to a greased baking dish.
In the same skillet used for onions, add minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Sprinkle flour over the garlic and stir to create a roux.
Gradually pour in beef broth and heavy cream, stirring constantly to avoid lumps. Allow the mixture to simmer and thicken. Season with fresh thyme, salt, and pepper.
Pour the savory sauce over the chicken and noodle mixture in the baking dish, ensuring an even distribution.
Top the casserole with the caramelized onions, spreading them evenly across the surface.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the casserole is bubbling and golden brown on top.
Allow it to cool slightly before serving, allowing the flavors to meld and intensify.
