Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 ½ c diced chicken (3/4 lb diced)
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tsp minced garlic
1 ¼ c diced onion
2 sprigs fresh thyme (divided)
4 tbsp dry white wine (divided) – we used Missouri Vidal Blanc
2 tbsp chicken stock
¾ c sour cream
2 c shredded Swiss and Gruyere cheese (divided)
1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Use a 10-12 inch cast iron skillet and add oil. Sauté diced chicken with salt and pepper and add garlic. Cook for 5-7 minutes on medium heat until chicken is no longer pink. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside. Tip: You can start with already cooked chicken – dice and sauté for 1-2 minutes with salt, pepper and garlic.
2.Add diced onion to skillet with a dash of salt. Cooking over medium heat, allow onions to sit without stirring for 5 minutes until colorful and fragrant.
3.Add 2 tablespoons white wine and 2 sprigs of thyme. Stir and cook for 5-6 minutes until onions are soft. Remove skillet from heat and remove thyme sprigs.
4.Add chicken back to skillet with the remaining 2 tablespoons of white wine. Add chicken stock, sour cream, 1 cup cheese, minced thyme, black pepper (optional) and stir. Spread until smooth and top with remaining cup of cheese.
5.Bake at 375 degrees F for 15-18 minutes until cheese is bubbly. Sprinkle extra thyme and black pepper if desired and serve hot.
