This recipe is easy to make. The first step is to caramelize the onions. To do that, cut the onions into thin slices and leave for a couple of minutes to sear at medium-high. In a few minutes, they will turn brown. You then proceed to reduce the heat to medium-low and then cook for about 10-15 minutes, while making sure to stir occasionally. After that, the onions will be soft and slightly browned.
The next thing you have to do is use chicken broth and dijon mustard to deglaze the pan. Ensure you remove all brown onion bits and then add the remaining ingredients. Finally, place everything in the oven and allow to bake for about 20 minutes. This process will continue cooking the onions thereby making them sweet and softer.
