French Onion Chicken and Potatoes


White russet or small red potatoes with chicken and french onion flavor for a delicious soup!


2MediumRusset (white or yellow-flesh potatoes or 4 to 5 small red potatoes)
2OunceChicken breasts (6 to 8 ounces each)
1PackageDry onion soup mix
4SliceSwiss cheese
1CupCanned fried onions


Cut potatoes in half lengthwise; slice across into 1/4-inch-thick half moons. On separate cutting board, cut chicken into 1/2-inch strips. If using tenders, it is not necessary to cut them.  In a 1-quart microwave-safe dish, combine chicken, soup mix and water, stirring until combined. Arrange potatoes on top of chicken in a single layer. Top with cheese.

Cover tightly with lid or plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 12 minutes (cooking time may vary depending on your microwave) or until potatoes and chicken are done. Let sit for two minutes. Use oven mitts or tongs to remove from microwave. Remove plastic wrap carefully to prevent burns from steam. Sprinkle with fried onions


May use 8 to 10 chicken tenders in placement of the 2 chicken breasts if needed.
