We just have to say from our own experience, this French Onion Chicken Skillet might be the best chicken dinner recipe we've ever had. It's definitely up there on the list! With only 5 ingredients, this chicken recipe is anything but complicated. If you love French onion soup, this is sure to become one of your newest go-to chicken dinners. All you need are a skillet, chicken breasts, a can of French onion soup, croutons of your choice, Swiss cheese, and olive oil and you're on your way to a tantalizing dinner. Cooking them all in the same skillet makes cleaning up after yourself a breeze. Any more time to enjoy this tasty dinner is time well spent.



  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (10.5-ounce) can French Onion Soup
  • 1 cup croutons
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

  2. Add chicken to the pan and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook each side for 3-4 minutes until browned.

  3. Add the French onion soup to the skillet and allow the chicken to continue to cook for another 4-5 minutes on each side, adding the croutons to the mixture after you flip the chicken. Cook the chicken until it’s white all the way through.

  4. When chicken is fully cooked, add a slice of Swiss cheese to the top of each chicken breast. Turn off heat and allow Swiss to melt over chicken. 

  5. Serve immediately.

Simple and delicious, what could possibly be better than that for a week night family dinner after a day of working at the office? This was so ridiculously easy to make that I kept checking in case I had forgotten to do something, lol. And, best of all, with some fresh roasted garden veg, it is a meal that we all really enjoyed.

If you love French Onion Soup as much as I do, you will love this French Onion Chicken Skillet. It has all the rich flavors of French onion soup, with the extra bonus of tender juicy chicken. I love recipes that I call "one pot wonders" so easy on the clean up. When you want a flavorful, quick and easy weeknight dinner for your family, this is the recipe to choose. Serves with a nice green salad, and your good to go.

I'm getting hungry just looking at this! And I pretty much already have all of the ingredients, so I might make it for dinner tonight )
