A note about serious food allergies
We know everybody loves French onion soup, so we figured out a way to incorporate those flavors into a delicious chicken dinner. Caramelized onions and Swiss cheese top a beautifully seared chicken breast before being melted to perfection in the oven. Tip: Easy way to remove thyme from stem: just pinch the top and run your fingers down the stem. Presto! The leaves should just fall off.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Customize It Instructions
If using NY strip steak, follow same instructions as chicken in Steps 1, 3, and 4. Sear undisturbed on one side, 2-3 minutes, flipping, then roasting in hot oven until steak reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 10-12 minutes. Halve to serve.
Prepare the Ingredients
Peel and halve onion. Slice into thin strips.
Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Caramelize the Onion
Place a medium oven-safe non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and onion to hot pan and spread onion into a thin layer (some overlap is ok). Reduce heat to medium and cook undisturbed until beginning to brown, 3-4 minutes.
Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, then stir often until onions are a deep golden brown, 5-6 minutes.
Add thyme and sherry wine. Cook until wine has evaporated, 2-3 minutes.
Transfer onion to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.
Coat and Sear the Chicken
Mix panko and ¼ tsp. salt on a plate. Add a chicken breast to panko and coat completely, pressing firmly to adhere. Shake gently to remove excess breading. Repeat with second chicken breast.
Return pan used to caramelize onions to medium-high heat. Add 1 Tbsp. olive oil and chicken breasts to hot pan. Sear undisturbed on one side, 2-3 minutes.
Roast the Chicken
Flip chicken, and place pan in hot oven. Roast until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 9-11 minutes.
Carefully top chicken with caramelized onions and cover with cheese. Roast again until cheese melts, 2-3 minutes.
Remove from oven and rest, 5 minutes.
While chicken rests, make salad.
Finish the Dish
Add white balsamic vinegar, sugar, 5 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to a mixing bowl and whisk or stir vigorously. Add spinach and tomatoes and toss or gently to combine to coat.
