Onion Soup (Non-French Style)

What would you do if you have 3 pounds of onions? I do not know. Ginny Gets Floury is caught in this situation. Well...I was caught in a similar situation before, on a much smaller scale though - a few yellow onions leftovers and did not know what to do with them all at once. No stewing beef cubes - I can't make beef stew. With the only produce left in the fridge - carrot; and pantry ingredient - a can of tomatoes, I decided to make my (non-french) onion soup.

Onion Soup (Non-French Style)
2-3 onions, thinly sliced; carrots, shredded; 1 can of diced tomatoes, 2 fillets of chicken breast(optional)

1. In a lightly oiled pan, add in onion, and carrots, and saute/cook till tender. The onions should just about to be caramelized.

2. Add in diced tomatoes, then add in chicken stock/water to make into a soup

3. Poach the chicken in the soup mixture till cooked. Then remove the chicken from the soup mixture for shredding (optional)
4. Continue simmer the soup till all the sweetness of the onions and carrots are released
5. Before serving, you can garnish with chicken shreds (optional)
