Just made this delicious, 4 thumbs up from my picky family, healthy meal for dinner tonight after a suggestion from a great friend. I chose zucchini and squash as my side.
French Onion Chicken
2 Large sweet onions, thinly sliced
2 tsp grass-fed butter
2 cups beef stock
4 cloves minced garlic
leaves from 6 stems of thyme, chopped (about 1 tsp) or 1/2 tsp of dried thyme
1 Tbs whole wheat flour (or other flour)
1 Tbs balsamic vinegar
2 tsp coconut oil
4 (8 oz each) boneless skinless chicken breasts
Salt & Pepper (I use Jane's Krazy Salt)
1 cup freshly shredded Swiss cheese
Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add in the onions and cook, stirring frequently. As needed, add in small amounts of beef stock to keep the onions from burning as they caramelize. Cook until onions are very tender and caramelized (about 20-30 minutes). Stir in the garlic and thyme and saute for one minute.
Then sprinkle the flour over the onion mixture and stir until combined. Add in the rest of the beef stock and bring to a simmer. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in balsamic vinegar. Pour onion mixture into a bowl and set aside.
Return pan to stove and increase heat to medium high. Add in coconut oil. Season chicken liberally with salt & pepper and sear in skillet for 3-4 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through. Reduce heat to medium-low, add the onion mixture over the top of the chicken and then add the shredded cheese on top. Cover and let cook until cheese is melted down.
