How to make French Onion Chicken?


– 3 tablespoons flour – 2 cups chicken or beef broth – 1/3 cup white wine – 3 cloves garlic , minced – 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar – 2 tablespoons dijon mustard

Place 2 tablespoons olive oil in pan and heat to medium-low.  Add onions and cook until the onions are a deep rich brown color.  About 45 minutes.

DO NOT TURN THE HEAT TO HIGH to cook it faster.  You may need to add a tablespoon of broth occasionally if you see the onions sticking.  The onions will reduce down a lot.  Don't worry.

While the onions are cooking in another pan you can cook the chicken.    Turn  heat up to high.  Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.  Season the chicken with salt and pepper than brown the each side of the chicken for 5 mins per side.
