I've never had it with chicken stock. It is amazing what we do to accomodate our kids and their kids - sometimes almost two separate menus

Hi Big dog,
they way I do mine when I use chicken stock is I slowly carmalize the onions til they are a rich walnut shell color, then when I add the stock it isn't pale like a chicken soup..It's a nice warm brown..But, as said, beef is traditional and tha is what I used yesterday.

I use a 3/1 mix of both. 3 parts beef, 1 part chicken. The chicken softens the flavor, IMO.

But onion soup made with only chix broth is to me.

I have made it with beef, veggie or chicken broth. I, myself prefer beef and other members of my family like the chicken better. Most times when I use chicken broth, I make it into a creamy onion soup which goes over very well here.

I voted for beef stock as well. I used veggie broth once and it turned out pretty decent. Never used chicken stock.

I generally use beef stock if I have some around.Actually I like to use the carcass of a prime rib after it has been cooked and use it for the broth.
I also use a dark chicken stock that is equally good.For me it's about the caramalization of the onion and the splash of my choice of vinegar that sets
the standard.

I used a microwave once.....just once!
