  2. Now cover with white wine and add honey. Simmer over high heat until the wine is almost gone. Discard the stock, add a sprig of rosemary and simmer for another 15 minutes. Adjust them according to taste with pepper, salt and nutmeg.
  3. Meanwhile, salt and pepper the chicken breasts. Heat some oil in a pan and fry the fillets on all sides. Remove from pan and top with slices of Gruyère.
  4. Heat the oven to 180 degrees top/bottom heat. Pour the cooked onions into an ovenproof dish and place the chicken breast on top of the onions.
