French Onion Soup is such a classic, and it’s one of my favorite soups. I just love the rich, savory flavor of it, and onions are one of my favorite ingredients.

How to Make it:

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet.
  2. Add the chicken breasts and cook 3-4 minutes on each side.
  3. Pour in the French Onion Soup and cook the chicken another 4-5 minutes on each side.
  4. Add in the croutons when you flip the chicken.
  5. Once the chicken is fully cooked, turn off the heat and top each chicken breast with a slice of cheese. Allow it to melt into the chicken.

The chicken is the star of the show, so keep the side dishes simple. Just serve it over a bed of rice or add in a vegetable mix.
