French Onion Chicken Bake

Ingredients :

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup beef or chicken broth
  • 3 cup shredded Gruyere cheese (or Swiss cheese)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh thyme leaves (optional, for garnish

Préparations :

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 370°F (180°C).
  2. Prepare Chicken: Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. Sear Chicken: In a large oven-safe skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken breasts for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Cook Onions: In the same skillet, add more olive oil if needed. Add the sliced onions and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until they are caramelized and golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Add minced garlic during the last couple of minutes of cooking the onions.
  5. Thicken Sauce: Sprinkle the flour over the caramelized onions and garlic, and cook for another minute, stirring constantly. Gradually pour in the broth while stirring, and let the mixture simmer for a couple of minutes until slightly thickened.

  1. Combine Ingredients: Return the chicken breasts to the skillet, nestling them into the onion mixture. Spoon some of the onion mixture over the chicken.
  2. Add Cheese: Sprinkle the shredded Gruyere (or Swiss) cheese and Parmesan cheese over the top of each chicken breast.
  3. Bake: Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  4. Serve: Once done, remove the skillet from the oven. Garnish with fresh thyme leaves if desired. Serve the French Onion Chicken Bake hot, with the onion mixture spooned over the chicken.
