French Onion Chicken –

Today’s post comes from somewhere I never imagined myself – TikTok. Most of our recipe inspirations come from places like YouTube and Pinterest. TikTok? Nahhh – that was a place to laugh at funny videos and watch a college kid named Dylan make recipes from vintage cookbooks, and a guy from England named Sam, sing covers of songs and watch as his career is starting to hit a meteoric rise. But, real dinners? Nope. Well, kids, tonight we were proven wrong.

So, you start out with some onions – there is only myself and my spouse home now, so use how much you feel you have to for how many people you are feeding. This serves two people.

For the two of us, I started with one medium onion, sliced, and put into my cast iron skillet. You’re going to want to caramelize your onions with a 2 tablespoons of cannabudder, a quarter cup of beef consommé, and a splash of red wine. When the onions are soft, and translucent, add in half a cup of white wine, and a cup of chicken stock.

Let that simmer on low heat. In another pan, place your chicken breasts. I used one and a half breasts. Season with with salt and pepper, if you want. I chose not to because there is a lot of sodium in the consommé and broth. Brown them on both sides, until they are golden brown. I got slightly distracted and ended up with a little char on them, but honestly, I think it added something to it. Place the breasts into that onion-y goodness. Add in two tablespoons of a cornstarch slurry. To make that, I used two tablespoons each of cornstarch and water. That wasn’t in the original recipe, but I wanted to thicken it up a little bit. Simmer for a few minutes to make sure the chicken is cooked through. Meanwhile, set your oven to broil.

The chicken added to the onion-y goodness.

When the oven is ready, sprinkle some shredded mozzarella (or Swiss cheese if that’s your thing) , on top of that chicken. Place it on the middle rack of your oven. You don’t want to burn the cheese, but you do want it to be all melty and gooey. Now, keep your eye on it. It should only take about five to 10 minutes for that to happen. Meanwhile, that onion-y goodness is getting thickened even more.

When it came out of the oven… mmmmm melty cheese

Garnish with fresh thyme leaves and some activated flower and/or kief. The reason I say to use the flower or kief as garnish is because once you put that pan in the oven on broil, you’re going to kill THC and CBD, and what’s the point of that? I mean, counterproductive for what we at EIBWB are about. So, use it as a garnish. Add a side dish of a veggie – we chose green beans. And some crusty French bread with some cannabutter on it… MMMM MMMMM GOOD!

All that yummy goodness on a plate

This recipe isn’t going to give you that “I can’t feel my face” level of euphoria, but it is going to take the edge of of things. It’s a good microdose deal. It was delish!
