French Onion Chicken Pasta:
French onion chicken is simply chicken that is cooked along with delicious caramelized onions in a delicious beef broth and coated with lots of melty cheese! We add pasta to this recipe to make it a complete one pot meal.
To make this French onion chicken pasta you start by caramelizing the onions. This process takes about 15-20 minutes, and is mostly hands off. You will melt your butter in a large skillet over medium heat, then, add the onions and allow them to cook down while stirring only occasionally. You will know the onions are done when they are a golden brown "caramel" color and nice and tender.
Then, remove the onions from the pan to a bowl. You will brown the seasoned diced chicken on all sides, but it doesn't need to be completely cooked through yet. Once the chicken is browned, add the onions back into the pan. Then, in goes the pasta and broth.
Now, cook about 10-12 minutes until your pasta is tender. Most of the liquid will be gone from the pan. There will be a small amount of liquid left and that is ok, it makes for a super creamy sauce when you stir in the cheese!
