Named for Lyons, a city in central France renowned for the quality of its food, Lyonnaise-style dishes are typically prepared or garnished with onions. A signature side dish at Chicago's famed Morton's steak house, this hearty combination of potatoes and onions is ideal with a juicy steak.
2 small yellow onions, peeled, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices (about 5 cups)
4 teaspoons olive oil
1 3/4 pounds peeled baking potatoes, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch slices (about 5 cups)
1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
