I'm going to make this for my lunch meal prep on Sunday!

Very good flavors and really easy to prepare too. I added some fresh garden peas and a chopped red bell pepper because the dish does not look very appetizing, being rather pale in color. We had ours on a bed of rice and with a lovely fresh green salad and it was very good indeed.

This 5 Ingredient Skillet French Onion Chicken is a great little recipe. The ingredients are so simple, it's quick and easy to prepare, and it delivers big flavor. I eat a lot of chicken so I am always looking for ways to change it up. This recipe is a terrific change from the usual.

I am a huge fan of french onion soup, so I can only imagine I'd be a fan of this chicken recipe! This recipe looks so easy to make, which is perfect for me. I can't wait to try this chicken dish!

I have to eat this delectable looking skillet chicken. What an easy recipe and quick to make AND easy on the budget. A winner all round in my book. I would need to leave out the croutons as I have to eat gluten free. But I don't think it's going to make that much of a difference to the dish in general.

What would be a good substitute for the croutons? Maybe I will just leave them out. What kind of swiss slices? Does it matter if it is natural swiss or processed swiss slices? They taste a lot different so I am asking. This would be a nice and easy low carb meal.

Wow, I can't believe you can make French onion soup with 5 ingredients! Can't wait to try this.
