For New Year's Eve, I made an awesome dip which included caramelized onions. I had never caramelized onions before and couldn't believe how delicious they were! It is quite easy to do and gives the onions so much flavor along with making them taste sweeter instead of having a bite to them.

I have been wanting to make those caramelized onions again and came up with the idea for French Onion Chicken, just like the well known French Onion Soup. Oh my goodness, this chicken turned out SO good that it may be my favorite chicken dish currently! My whole family loved it as well.

This French Onion Chicken is pretty easy to make and can all be made in one skillet. It is full of flavor. I decided to serve this French onion chicken with some zoodles. I'm sure most of you know the term by now but zoodles = spiralized zucchini noodles. I added the traditional Swiss cheese on the chicken to get all melted and delicious.

For a little fresh flavor, I topped the chicken with chopped parsley. I didn't think of it until now but I should have bought a nice loaf of bread to go along with the chicken since French onion soup always has croutons in it. Next time! The flour and beef broth makes a light gravy that is so, so delicious. It tastes just like French onion soup.

Green Giant® just came out with frozen spiralized veggie noodles and I couldn't be more excited. I know that the idea of spiralizing veggies is overwhelming for people or you may just not own your own spiralizer. Now, you can pickup spiralized noodles ready to cook right in the freezer section. I found mine at my local Walmart. They come without sauce or seasonings so that you can make them however you like.

Green Giant® Veggie Spirals come in 4 kinds: butternut squash, beets, zucchini and carrots. I have spiralized all of these vegetables and they are so delicious in different recipes. I definitely look forward to experimenting more with these different kinds of noodles. Although I have nothing wrong with noodles, veggie noodles are a great way to reduce calories and increase fiber, vitamins and minerals in a meal. Plus, they are so fun! I love making butternut squash spiralized fries. Carrots and zucchini are great with an Asian dressing. I also have an awesome spiralized beet recipe with a homemade vinaigrette that I got my family onto making themselves.

You can use these Veggie Spirals in soups, salads, side dishes or main meals. You can cook them three different ways: microwave them, saute on the stove top or boil. I prefer mine sauteed the best. They have up to 90% less calories than pasta which is just crazy! 
for Thanksgiving morning last year and I knew that I had to share the recipe on the blog because it was so good!

prep time: 5 MINS cook time: 25 MINS total time: 30 mins

INGREDIENTS

  • French Onion Chicken
  • 2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian blend seasoning
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons white whole-wheat flour
  • 1 cup low-sodium beef broth
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • Fresh parsley, chopped

  • Garlic Zoodles
  • 1 package Green Giant Zucchini Veggie Spirals
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a skillet, melt butter and then add onions. Saute onions for about 15 minutes at medium heat stirring every few minutes to ensure onions don't burn until they are browned and tender. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle chicken breasts with oil and sprinkle with Italian herbs, garlic powder and black pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side until chicken is browned (it does not need to be cooked through).
  3. Add the onions back into pan. Sprinkle with flour and cook for 1 minute over medium heat. Add beef broth and stir. Top chicken with 1 slice of Swiss cheese each. 
  4. Place skillet in oven and cook for 10 minutes until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted. Meanwhile, cook zucchini noodles in a pan over medium heat with butter until soft- about 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can cook for 5-6 minutes in the package, drain water and then sprinkle with garlic powder.
  5. Top with chopped parsley and black pepper if desired.
