Chicken Con Cipolle e Formaggio

I have a plethora of chicken breasts at my house right now, about 40 lbs to be exact.So expect a lot of chicken recipes in the next few weeks.

I knew I wanted to try a new recipe, as my husband easily tires of chicken, and to get him to love any chicken dish, it has to be new, and something we don’t eat very often!

Thus came along Chicken con Cipolle e Formaggio, which is really just Chicken with Onions and Cheese, but it sounds so fancy :) 

Not to brag, but oh wow! This dish came out even better than I could have imagined. It was so moist and flavorful!

Chicken con Cipolle e Formaggio:

3-4 Chicken Breasts
1 medium onion, sliced
8 slices of goat cheese
Italian dressing of choice to marinate Chicken in
Coconut Oil to grease your baking dish and for Onions

Marinate your Chicken breasts in Italian dressing of your choice up to 24 hours.

Preheat your oven to 375.

Lightly grease a baking dish, add your marinated chicken breasts to the dish and cook for 25 minutes.

While your chicken breasts are cooking, add some coconut oil to a saute pan and heat over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add your sliced onion. While they are cooking, sprinkle with salt (this makes them sweet, not sugar surprisingly) Let them cook until they are slightly browned and very limp.

When the 25 minutes is up, take your chicken out of the oven, top each breast with 2 slices of goat cheese (or more or less), and then a large pile of onions. Put back into the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.

I wanted my onions and cheese to brown slightly, so for the last five minutes I turned my oven to broil.
