French Onion Chicken Bake


This French Onion Chicken Bake is so easy to make and delicious. A seasoned chicken breast smothered in French Onion Soup and topped with shredded Mozzarella (or Grueye) cheese.

  • Ingredients:
  • 6 (4 oz.) chicken breasts, raw
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp seasoned salt
  • 2 tbsp  canola oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, peeled & sliced
  • 1 (10 oz.) can French Onion Soup ( I use Progresso)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella (or Gruyere)
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a skillet pan (or cast-iron skillet) add oil.
  • Add sliced onions. Saute the onions in oil until softened and translucent.
  • When onions become soft, place onions on a plate and set aside.
  • Using the same skillet, add a little more oil.
  • Season each chicken breast with paprika, garlic powder, and seasoned salt.
  • Place seasoned chicken breasts into prepared skillet.
  • Cook for 5-7 minutes on medium-high, on both sides or until chicken breasts are golden brown.
  • Add onions back into the skillet with the chicken breasts.
  • Pour in the can of French Onion Soup.
  • Simmer the chicken and onions in the soup for 2-3 minutes-this will allow the soup to caramelize the chicken.
  • If using a cast-iron skillet top each chicken breast with cheese. (otherwise-transfer chicken, onions, and sauce into an oven-safe baking dish and top with the cheese.)
  • Place skillet or baking dish in a preheated oven.
  • Cook for 10-15 minutes or until bubbly.

  1. Even I could follow that recipe. Over twenty five years ago I bought can of Campbell’s French Onion Consomme. It was absolutely divine but I’ve never seen it around since.
