What could be better than a hot bowl of soup on a cold day? Debbie McLain's simple and delicious chicken dish inspired by the classic French Onion Soup is the perfect winter warm-up!

Debbie's French Onion Chicken
  • 1 1/4 lb chicken thighs 
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large (or 2 medium) onions, sliced thin
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 4-6 slices Swiss cheese
Preheat oven to 425. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Toss with flour to coat.

In a 12 inch oven-safe skillet, heat 1 Tbsp oil on medium-high. Add chicken and cook 5-10 minutes per side (depending on how big/thick the thighs are) until browned. Transfer to plate and keep warm.

Add 1 Tbsp oil to skillet, along with the onions and thyme. Cook 8-10 minutes, stirring often, until onions are golden.

Add chicken broth to the skillet. Return chicken to skillet. Spoon liquid and onions over chicken. Place a slice of Swiss cheese over each chicken thigh. Transfer to oven and bake for 15 minutes until cheese melts and chicken is cooked through.
