You would not believe the flavor that comes out of such a simple recipe. The onion cheese combination is delicious. Swiss can be substituted but you won't get nearly the flavor. Recipe comes from a cookbook by Pol Martin.

Repeated this recipe 1 year later -- this time with gruyere cheese-- which DID make a difference ! Still using bone-in thighs, and baking for 25 min., but the flavors were very pleasing. This will stay in my "keeper" file ---much like the Chicken Reuben casserole. Thanks, richabby.
Here I am, snowed in for the 4th day, and pantry products shrinking ! I had frozen b/s-s/l chicken thighs and the closest cheese was Swiss. I prepared according to recipe -- makes up quickly, but had to deglaze the pan with some white wine -- which was no problem. Placed in the oven at 350* for 20 minutes. Served with baked potato and peas. Luckily I had some frozen Meyer lemon juice cubes from a Zaar friend, which added a tasty zip. Was very tasty, richabby -- thanks.
Very tasty easy dinner. I love the onions. I used a lite cheese and it didn't melt - I now know better with this particular brand. All the flavors came together beautifully. I prepared the dish earlier in the day and popped in in the oven for 20 minutes before serving.
