making life sweeter
There’s nothing quite like the flavor of a fresh, true sweet onion, but cooking with these little gems can be a bit tricky. The unique composition of a sweet onion makes them a wonderful ingredient in some dishes and a terrible choice for others. For the best results when cooking sweet onions consider these helpful tips:

Use sweets: Raw in sandwiches and salads; lightly grilled-whole or sliced, gently roasted or quickly baked; in stir-frys; power bowls, street tacos and other fresh fare. They are delicious caramelized but take care not to stir them too rigorously or cook them at too high a temperature

Avoid using in: Slow-cooker or long-simmering recipes like chili, stews, soup or in baked casserole dishes. Prolonged cooking breaks down the delicate texture and flavor of sweet onions.

French Onion Chicken
2 large sweet onions, sliced
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup beef broth or stock
4 chicken breasts, pounded to uniform thickness
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 1/2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup provolone cheese, shredded or sliced
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded or sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Heat a large oven-safe skillet to medium high and add butter. Add sliced onions and stir. Continue to cook, stirring every few minutes, for about 15 minutes or until onions are translucent and softened.

While onions are cooking, drizzle chicken breasts with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and thyme. Once the onions are done cooking, remove them from the skillet and set aside. Place chicken breasts in pan and cook for 5 minutes per side.

Remove chicken from skillet and set aside. Return onions to the skillet and sprinkle the flour over the onions. Stir and cook for one minute. Pour in the beef broth/stock and whisk the mixture together, making sure to break up and lumps of flour.

Once the sauce is thickened, add the chicken back into skillet and spoon sauce all over the chicken. Top with cheeses. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and chicken is cooked through. Let rest a few minutes before serving.
