    I love this recipe . I make the onion soup then freeze it in a few portions . The best way to make it is in the slow cooker with the onion soup, and add all other ingredients. I add about 1kg chicken thigh, veggies plus some sweet potato to thicken it up and after 4-6 hours it’s DELICIOUS!

    Made this last tonight. We are having it today but the taste test proved lovely. I love the fact that the soup was made for this recipe and as others have said, with elftovers to pop into the freezer (if hibby doesn;t eat them first as it is still in the fridge. I do like a little thicker sauce though (personal preferfence) so next time I might add a little cornflour slurry.Thanks for a great recipe tmrc_emoticons.)

    Submitted by honeycomb on 13. July 2017 - 15:24.

    Amazing recipe - I doubled the chicken (so used 4 chicken breasts) and I also doubled the sauce and added 3 tbs of flour to thicken it up a bit. I served it with mashed potato, corn on the cob done in the oven and I also steamed sliced carrots and green beans in the varoma at the same time as the chicken.

    I put the chicken from the varoma into the thermomix in Step 1 of the Apricot Chicken part and it turned out just right.

    I have frozen the leftover french onion soup in portions so it will be a quick dinner to make next time.

    A big hit all round in our house last night - thank you for this recipe - I will definitely be making it again!

    Great recipe, delicious. I was a bit unsure when to add the cooked chicken pieces to the sauce...do you add to the sauce then cook the final 15min or add after sauce is cooked when putting on rice?

    Submitted by eanschaw on 6. May 2016 - 19:04.

    Made this tonight in conjunction with non-fried fried rice.  Made the french onion soup last week and froze it into portion size.  Very tasty and my husband loved it.  Just would be helpful to have weight of chicken used.

    Submitted by lisanicole80 on 12. February 2016 - 10:46.

    Great recipe. I got 3 batches of french onion soup to pop in freezer. Quick and easy. I also added some peas and corn. At the end as its a bit runny I added some 2 tablespoons of corn flour to thicken.
