- In a bowl, add the chicken thighs, salt, pepper, garlic, dried parsley, and olive oil, and toss until evenly coated.
- Add the chicken to a skillet on medium-high heat. Sear until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Flip and cook the other side of the chicken, 2 minutes. Remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
- Preheat oven to broil.
- Add the butter, sliced onions, salt, and pepper to the same pan, stirring occasionally until softened. Reduce heat to low and cook until they are deeply caramelized, about 1 hour.
- Add thyme and beef broth and bring the mixture to a simmer.
- Add the chicken on top of the onions, and sprinkle with Gruyère cheese.
- Broil for 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and golden brown.
- Serve over bread.
