This one skillet meal begins with flavorful caramelized onions and our Bell & Evans Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs.  For the big finish crispy bacon, croutons and melted gruyere cheese. It’s a cheesy meal for the whole family to enjoy!


  • 1 lb. Bell & Evans Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
  • 2 TB Butter
  • 1 Large Yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 TB Chopped fresh thyme

  • 1 cup Beef broth
  • 6 Slices Bacon, crisp-cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup Croutons
  • 1 1/2 cups Shredded gruyere cheese

  1. Melt the butter in a large cast iron skillet. Add the onions and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 20-25 minutes, stirring frequently, until the onions are caramelized.

    after printing out this recipe, I realized that there are a couple of mistakes that you will want to address. # 1 & 2 in the preparation section are the same. also, “then mixed in with potatoes and herbs” Potatoes are not included in the list of ingredients nor in the preparation process.
    looking forward to making this dish tonight. it looks great and creative.

    1. Patrick, thank you! We’ve made the corrections.

        Where is the correction made? Don’t see it

        1. In Patrick’s comment, he noted ““then mixed in with potatoes and herbs” Potatoes are not included in the list of ingredients nor in the preparation process.” There are no potatoes in this recipe, so we took it out. That was the correction. Thanks Rose.

    I made this with 3 large candy onions and did not add croutons. It was amazing. Takes a while to properly carmelize the onions, but it’s worth it!
