French Onion Chicken is a delicious, creamy, rich flavored chicken. The flavor of caramelized onions is what makes the body of this dish. This dish does not have soupy consistency.

The dish has bold flavors from caramelized onions and it’s just perfect dinner with some hot, fresh French bread to dip in and eat them. It’s simply delicious! Usually,

French onion dish calls for Gruyere cheese, since I could not find the cheese any where locally, I simple skipped it. But to experience the traditional French onion chicken taste, do add Gruyere cheese to give that bubbly, cheesy texture.

How to make French Onion Chicken Recipe

  1. To begin making the French Onion Chicken recipe, clean and wash the chicken thighs well. Cut them into 2 pieces. I used chicken without skin.

  2. Add salt, pepper powder to the chicken pieces and mix well. Marinate it for about 30 minutes inside fridge.

  3. In a cast iron pan add olive. Add crushed garlic and sauté until it turns brown. Now add the marinated chicken pieces. Roast it until it turns brown on both sides. Remove from the pan and set it aside.

  4. Now add butter and let it melt. Add thin sliced onions to the pan and cook on low flame until the onions caramelize. It would take some time to caramelize the onions. Be patient.

  5. Once the onions are caramelized, add thyme and sauté for a minute.

  6. Add flour, whisk well. Make sure no lumps are formed.

  7. Add chicken stock, continue to whisk and cook until thickened.

  8. Add the roasted chicken into the pan, cook for 5 to 7 minutes.

  9. Finally add vinegar and Dijon mustard mix well and cook for 3 minutes.

  10. Now add grated Gruyere cheese on top of the chicken, broil it for 2 to 3 minutes until cheese melts and bubbles up.

  11. Serve French Onion Chicken along with Roasted Garlic No Knead Skillet Bread Recipe With Olives and Summer Salad Recipe-Red Cabbage, Lettuce Onions & Tomatoes for a  lip smacking Sunday Brunch.
