1 tsp thyme, chopped
2 lbs. onions, sliced
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 lb. chicken breasts or thighs (optionally boneless and skinless)
2 tbsp flour
1 cup gruyere, grated
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 c beef broth or chicken broth


Place a pan on the stove and turn the heat to medium. Add butter and allow it to melt.

Add the onions into the hot pan, then cook until caramelized. Add garlic and saute for a minute or until aromatic.

Add thyme and flour, then cook for one more minute to remove the raw taste.

Add 1/2 of the broth, then scrape the bottom of the pan to get the browned bits. Stir and allow it to boil. Turn the heat down to low, then simmer for 5 minutes.

Add another pan to the stove and turn the heat to medium-high. Add oil and allow it to become hot.

Season the chicken and sear them in the pan for about 4 minutes. Pour in broth.

Add mustard and balsamic vinegar, then stir until well incorporated. Let it simmer for 5 minutes.

Add the onions into a heat-proof pan, then put the chicken over the onions in a single layer. Add broth and cover it with foil.

Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.

Remove the foil cover, then sprinkle the cheese over the chicken and broil for 3 minutes or until the top turns golden brown.

Serve and enjoy!
