This caramelized onion smothered chicken breast is so juicy and tender.. the whole family will be asking for seconds!

Let’s get started!

I start with 2 large chicken breast that I cut in half lengthwise.  This helps the chicken cook quicker and stay juicy.

Season both sides of the chicken breast with thyme, salt and pepper.

Now heat the avocado oil in a large skillet oven medium high heat.

Brown the chicken breast on both sides and cook until an internal meat thermometer reads 165F.

Remove from heat to a plate and set aside.

Now we need to caramelize the onions for our French onion chicken.  This is takes some time but it is so worth it!

Reduce the heat to medium and add the butter, onions and 1/2 cup beef broth to the skillet.

Make sure to cook the onions until browned and caramelized.

Add more beef broth if the onions start to dry out. The caramelized onions should take about 20 minutes.

Add in mushrooms to the caramelized onions and cook for 5 more minutes.

When the onions and mushrooms are finished, add the rest of the beef broth.

I’m pretty sure your kitchen is smelling amazing right about now!

Now add in the chicken breast back to the skillet and use a spoon or tongs to smother them with the onion and mushroom mixture.
