Chicken Dijon

This is a chicken dish over grilled onions, topped with a honey dijon mustard, cheese, green onions, and tomatoes. Pure bliss. There used to be this restaurant where I live that had this dish on their menu. I loved it. They closed down, and I was heart broken. They still have a bar opened here…
