Poaching bone-in chicken breasts in stock yields tender, juicy meat--use this method for enchiladas and chicken salad too. For an extra bit of crunch and concentrated onion flavor, sprinkle 1/4 cup dried minced onion over the casserole. You could also use toasted breadcrumbs or crushed baked potato chips.
