French onion chicken is a spin off of French onion soup. It is made with a superb combination of onions, chicken breasts, beef stock, and spices. The outcome is out of this world. When I served this up at a dinner party, my guests when crazy and begged me for the recipe.
You can change the recipe in several ways. First off, you do not have to use chicken, as beef can be used too. I love beef stock, but chicken stock or vegetable stock can be used as well. Swiss cheese is great, but you can use the cheese of your choice.
