French Onion Chicken Thighs

January 21, 2019

Looking for a comforting one-pot dinner? Well look no further! These French Onion Chicken Thighs are the perfect one pot dinner that is grain free, gluten free, and packed with protein! I served mine with some sweet potato fries and steamed green beans.

Check out the recipe below!


3 tbsp olive oil
2 large onions, thinly sliced
1 lb skinless boneless chicken thighs
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1/2 cup red wine
1 cup chicken broth
¼ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ tablespoon dried basil, thyme, and oregano
½ cup shredded asiago cheese
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
Sea salt to taste


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a cast iron skillet or dutch oven over medium low.
  2. Once the oil is glistening, add the onions and cook on medium low until they reach a dark amber colour, about 1 hour.
  3. While the onions are cooking, season your chicken thighs with sea salt, onion powder, and garlic powder.
  4. Once the onions have cooked down and are a rich amber colour, remove from the pan and place in a dish.
  5. Return the pan to the heat and add the other tablespoon of olive oil. Pan fry the chicken thighs on each side until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and set aside ( You may have to work in batches depending on the size of your pan).
  6. Add in the garlic, red wine, herbs, and chicken broth to the pan. Scrape any bits that may be stuck to the bottom of your pan.
  7. Add the cooked onions and the browned chicken thighs. Cover and cook on medium low until the chicken thighs are cooked through, about another 10 minutes.
  8. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  9. Top the chicken with the asiago and parmesan, and place under the broiler until bubbly and golden brown.
