Begin by browning the onions in a large skillet with four tablespoons of butter. Cook for 10 minutes over medium to medium-high heat.
While the onions cook, rub the chicken down with the dry onion mix and let sit until the onions are browned.
Add the chicken to the onions after about 10 minutes of cooking. If you are using chicken breasts, you may want to add butter so the chicken does not get too dry. The chicken thighs should be fine without more butter.
Cook the chicken on each side for 4-6 minutes. when chicken is cooked on both sides, spread sour cream over the chicken. Add the water and cream to the pan and then sprinkle the parmesan over the chicken.
Let simmer for another 8-10 minutes to let the sauce reduce.
Serve over pasta or rice. For low-carb use cauliflower rice. Make my Instant Pot pasta for a quick pasta.
