Chicken and Triple Onion Soup

My husbands favorite soup is french onion. I decided to try something a little different. It turned out really good. Today, it totally hit the spot for the rainy and dreary day in

Chicken and Triple Onion Soup
1/2 stick of butter
2 Leeks
2 Large Sweet Onions
4-6 Large Shallots
4 garlic cloves
4 Lg. Chicken Breast Shredded
6-8 cps of HOMEMADE stock (It makes a difference)
2 TB fresh Thyme
2 TB fresh Basil
salt and pepper

Provolone cheese

1. Melt butter ,Then add the onions and garlic. Let it carmalize. Cook low with the lid on until turns a light brown.

2. Add the broth and fresh herbs, salt and pepper. Simmer until ready to eat.

3. Top the soup with a slice of baguette and provolone cheese. Broil this on high until the cheese is brown and bubble. Remove the soup from the oven and it is ready to eat. Serve with more crusty bread.
