there was NO meat in it. Everyone loved it, as you probably remember. However, I have since had French Onion Soup made with chicken broth, and it was a little bit better, in my opinion.
As far as this recipe goes, I hadn't thought of the fact that they use beef broth instead of chicken until you mentioned it. It is kind of odd they use beef broth with chicken meat. I am thinking it is probably because they want it to look like most French Onion Soups do. Most I have eaten in restaurants do use beef broth.
I am going to try to find the above recipe's URL to show everyone what it looks like.
