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! There is plenty of yummy gravy!
