    Sherri35's Note:

    This chicken can be done in the oven or it is excellent in the slow cooker also. The sauce is so delicious and I suggest serving it over pasta, noodles, baked potatoes or with some good French bread.

      A very simple recipe to make. Not alot of ingredients to confuse the issue and very simple but good flavors. I cut the thyme back to 1/2 teaspoon because I felt that if I used the whole amount listed, the flavor would be overpowering. I am glad I did. I am not a huge fan of thyme but feel that it has a subtle flavor that goes well in this dish. I also thickened up the sauce a little with some cornstarch and served it over egg noodles. A really great weeknight supper! Thanks!

      I had forgotten about my crockpot but with 2 kids and work, I pulled it out again recently and found this recipe was perfect! It is so simple and tasty. My hubby got the powdered french onion soup by mistake but it was still great and it tasted even better when we had the left overs the next night!

      I recently went back to school part-time in the evenings and found that there is no cafeteria service in the evenings. There are several microwaves, so I've been packing lunch and dinner a couple of days a week and am always on the lookout for simple recipes, especially crockpot stuff. This recipe appealed to me for it's simplicity and the crockpot option. It is VERY easy to assemble, and I did go the crockpot route. I made some rice to go on the side. I have to say I'm not overly fond of this recipe, it seemed the french onion soup gave it a bit of a metallic taste, but I will try it one more time, perhaps the stovetop and/or with a different side dish. It's edible and great for a diet, since it's lowfat and since it's not super-tasty I'm not gobbling too fast or too much. :)
