To get a good flavor, you can season the chicken breast before grilling it. And I have to admit … French onion soup really takes this recipe to the next level !!


6 ( 4 oz.) chicken breast, raw

1/4 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp seasoned salt

1 Tbsp Land lakes light butter made with canola oil

1 small yellow onion, peeled & sliced

1 (10 oz.) can FRENCH ONION SOUP ( I use CAMPBELL’S)

1/2 cup fat-free or light mozzarella (I use Market Pantry reduced-fat mozzarella)


Preheat the 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 them 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 a 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 a skillet or baking dish in a preheated oven.

Cook for 10-15 minutes or until bubbly.

Unveiling the Ingredients:

Prepare yourself for a culinary adventure with just a handful of carefully curated ingredients.

Enhance the natural flavors of the chicken with a dash of paprika, garlic powder, and seasoned salt, providing a harmonious blend of savory notes that will leave you craving for more.

The French Onion Magic:

The secret ingredient that truly sets this dish apart is none other than the iconic French onion soup. We’ve chosen Campbell’s French Onion Soup for its rich and savory profile, infusing each bite with a depth of flavor that is simply irresistible. This humble soup transforms the ordinary chicken breast into a culinary masterpiece, taking your taste buds on a journey of pure delight.

Crafting the Perfect Dish:

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, setting the stage for culinary excellence. In a skillet or cast iron grill skillet, melt Land Lakes light butter made with canola oil, infusing the cooking process with a subtle richness that enhances the overall flavor profile. Sauté the sliced yellow onions until they are softened and translucent, releasing their natural sweetness and aroma.

The Grilling Process:

Season each chicken breast with paprika, garlic powder, and seasoned salt, ensuring that each bite is bursting with flavor. Place the seasoned chicken breasts into the prepared skillet, allowing them to cook for 5-7 minutes on medium-high heat until they achieve a golden brown hue on both sides. This initial grilling process locks in the juices and seals in the flavor, ensuring tender and succulent chicken with every bite.

Infusing the Essence of French Onion:

Once the chicken breasts are perfectly grilled, add the sautéed onions back into the skillet, reintroducing their caramelized sweetness to the dish. Pour in the can of Campbell’s French Onion Soup, allowing the flavors to meld and infuse the chicken with the essence of French onion goodness. Simmer the chicken and onions in the soup for 2-3 minutes, allowing the sauce to caramelize and intensify in flavor.

The Finishing Touch:

For the pièce de résistance, top each chicken breast with fat-free or light mozzarella cheese, adding a creamy and indulgent layer of goodness that perfectly complements the savory notes of the dish. If using a cast iron skillet pan, simply place it in the preheated oven to allow the cheese to melt and the flavors to meld together. Alternatively, transfer the chicken, onions, and sauce into an oven-safe baking dish before topping with cheese.
