“Bill is a huge fan of French Onion Soup and he saw a French Onion Soup Chicken recipe that he asked me to try. I think I found a better one, and it’s a lot faster and easier too. I just doubled the sauce. This tender chicken, French Onion Soup style, is real easy to make in a slow cooker. It is so tasty and I love it too! Bill thought it was fabulous! It was delicious served with rice, and it’ll be great with mashed potatoes, polenta, or over a thick slice of lightly toasted bread. Enjoy!”
