There is nothing like the taste of french onion soup sometimes. But boy is it labor-intensive and not all that easy to make. We put a quick and easy spin on this delicious staple to make it family-friendly and a little healthier. Our baked chicken with french onion soup mix is a full meal rolled up in one dish so the clean-up is super quick. Its a family pleaser from the husband down to the tiny humans. 🙂

How do you know when it is done cooking?

You can poke the meat to see if juices are red or clear. This method applies to chicken specifically. When you poke a chicken breast and the juices that escape are clear, then it is most likely done. If the juices are red or have a pinkish color, your chicken needs some more time in the oven. Ideally, if you have a meat thermometer, cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. (This one has amazing reviews and is a user-favorite!)

At the end of the day, sometimes you’re just tired and you need to throw something together so you can get out the door ASAP. Well, this is your answer. However, just because you need something quick doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice health and taste. This dish is packed with both and is easy in a pinch. This baked chicken is on our monthly food rotation and that is definitely not a bad thing!

*For this recipe, we used frozen green beans from Trader Joe’s. Fresh green beans would enhance this dish even more but the frozen ones work great and soak up the flavors of the yummy french onion soup mix.
