Sticky gooey caramelised onions topped with slightly spiced chicken and melted Cheddar cheese. I used Old Bay seasoning for the chicken which is almost impossible to get here in the UK but I got mine from someone on eBay who already had a stock in the UK so it arrived the very next day - Marvelous!
I can't imagine it did us a bit of good but it was very, very nice!
To serve 2 you will need: 2 skinless chicken breast fillets- sliced into thin strips 2 large onions a really good handful of Cheddar cheese - grated a small freshly baked baguette a little vegetable oil and butter for frying 1 teaspoon of cornflour 1/2 tablespoon of soy sauce 1 tablespoon of Old Bay seasoning plus 1/2 a tablespoon of vegetable oil
How to do it: In a small bowl add the cornflour, the 1/2 tablespoon of vegetable oil and soy sauce and mix together. Add the sliced chicken and give it a good stir to make sure the chicken if fully coated and set aside for about 30 minutes.
While that's happening, heat a little butter and oil in a large frying pan and add the sliced onions. Cook them over a gentle heat for a good while trying not to move the onions about too much. Just give them a shove around the pan every 10 minutes or so. They'll take about 35 to 45 minutes to get nice and sticky and caramelised.
Now add the Old Bay seasoning to the chicken and give it a good stir, to coat the chicken well. In another smaller frying pan add a tiny bit of vegetable oil, heat it up and then add the chicken. It wont take long to cook as it's sliced thinly.
Put the grill on if it's one that needs heating up first.
Now get yourself a nice fresh baguette, slice it in half longways and then slice across the midle to open up. Pop it under the grill for just a minute or two to slightly brown and crisp the bread part. Put a good helping of the caramelised onions on the bread followed by the cooked chicken. Top generously with grated cheese and pop back under the grill till the cheese melts. Waste no time and eat straight away.
I served the baguettes with skinny fries and home made coleslaw.
