French Onion Chicken

Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 45 mins
Servings 4 servings


  • 3 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 large onion (halved and thinly sliced)
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme (chopped)
  • kosher salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 3/4 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 cup Gruyere cheese (shredded)
  • chopped parsley (optional garnish)


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 2 tbsp olive oil. Add onions and season with salt, pepper, and thyme. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally until onions are caramelized, about 25 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Turn off heat and remove onion mixture. Wipe skillet clean.
  • In a large bowl, season chicken with salt, pepper, and oregano, then toss with flour. Heat remaining oil in the same skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook until golden on all sides and mostly cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  • Add beef broth and return cooked onions to skillet. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until chicken is cooked and beef broth reduces slightly about 10 more minutes.
  • Add Gruyere and cover skillet with a lid. Cook until cheese is melted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and garnish with parsley. Serve warm.
