One-pot French onion-stuffed chicken recipe



One of our favourite retro flavours would have to be French onion. We’ve added it to this stuffed chicken dish for an extra flavour kick, although bacon, mushroom and cheese already do a good job! The whole lot is smothered in cream but making it all in one dish means there’s less mess.

13 Ingredients

* 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

* 100g button mushrooms, sliced

* 3 short-cut bacon rashers, finely chopped

* 40g packet French onion soup mix

* 60g baby spinach

* 100g (1 cup) coarsely grated mozzarella

* 2 (about 200g each) chicken breast fillets

* 50g butter, chopped

* 1 brown onion, halved, thinly sliced

* 2 garlic cloves, crushed

* 300ml carton cooking cream

* 15g (1/4 cup) panko breadcrumbs

* 1/4 cup chopped fresh continental parsley leaves

5 Method / Steps

Step 1

Heat oil in a large ovenproof frying pan over medium-high heat. Add mushroom and bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes or until golden. Add 2 tsp of the soup mix then add the spinach and cook, stirring, until spinach just wilts. Remove from heat and set aside cool for 10 minutes. Add 40g (1/3 cup) of the mozzarella and stir until combined.

Step 2

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan force. Cut each chicken breast in half horizontally. Place each chicken fillet between 2 sheets of baking paper. Use a mallet or rolling pin to gently pound the thickest part of the chicken until the fillets are an even thickness.

Step 3

Divide mushroom mixture among chicken pieces and roll up to enclose filling.

Step 4

Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add remaining soup mix. Add the cream and 125ml (1/2 cup) water and cook, stirring, until the mixture comes to a simmer. Add chicken to the pan. Bake for 10 minutes or until the chicken is almost cooked through.

Step 5

Sprinkle chicken with remaining cheese and breadcrumbs and bake for a further 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and cheese is golden. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.
