French Onion Soup is a classic of French cuisine for its deep savory flavor and comforting warmth.

The chicken is made extra fatty with a coating of garlic mayonnaise, which also helps keep the chicken juicy. French Onion Chicken only takes 25 minutes to make, so you can enjoy rich French cooking on a weeknight.
