Can I Use Chicken Thighs Instead of Chicken Breasts?

Sure, you can use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts. But I prefer to use large chicken breasts since it easily holds the sauce, easy to transfer to the casserole dish to melt the cheese on top.

What Are The Other Cheese Option?

My first preference will be swiss cheese if you want to get a perfect flavor in the french onion soup. But if you do not like swiss cheese, you can use the classic Gruyere cheese instead. Also, note that Gruyere cheese is not sold in slices, and they are a little expensive. You can also use provolone or mozzarella cheese.
