Ingredients

  • 1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion (2 onions)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade, heated
  • 1 tablespoon Cognac or brandy
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream (optional)

Directions

  • In a large (10- to 12-inch) saute pan, cook the butter and onions on medium-low heat for 12 to 15 minutes, until the onions are lightly browned. Don't rush this step; it makes all the difference when the onions are well cooked.

  • Sprinkle the flour into the pan, whisk in, then add the salt and pepper. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the hot chicken stock and Cognac, and cook uncovered for 4 to 5 minutes, until thickened. Add the cream, if desired, and serve.

I would give this 10 stars. I used Turkery stock instead of chicken & yes, the onions are more like 15 min to brown but it's so easy & tastes amazing!!! See All Reviews Post Review
