French Onion Chicken Bake

Ingredients:

  • 6 ( 4 oz.) chicken breast, raw
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp seasoned salt
  • 1 Tbsp Land o’Lakes light butter made with canola oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, peeled & sliced
  • 1 (10 oz.) can French onion soup
  • 1/2 cup fat free or light mozzarella

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a skillet pan (or cast iron grill skillet) melt butter and add sliced onions. Saute the onions in butter until softened and translucent.
  • When onions become soft, place onions on a plate and set aside.
  • Using the same skillet, spray the skillet with non stick cooking spray.
  • Season each chicken breast with paprika, garlic powder, and seasoned salt. Place seasoned chicken breasts into prepared skillet. Cook for 5-7 minutes on medium high, on both sides or until chicken breasts are golden brown. Add onions back into the skillet with the chicken breasts.
  • Pour in the can of French onion soup. Simmer the chicken and onions in the soup for 2-3 minutes-this will allow the soup to caramelize the chicken.
  • If using a cast iron skillet pan top each chicken breast with light mozzarella cheese. (otherwise-transfer chicken, onions, and sauce into an oven safe baking dish-and top with light mozzarella cheese.)
  • Place skillet or baking dish in preheated oven.
  • Cook for 10-15 minutes or until bubbly.

Servings: Makes 6 ( 1 chicken breast and 1/4 cup onions and sauce) servings
