Author's Notes: This simple combination of onions in chicken stock with heavy cream is about as no fuss as you can get. The cream reduces into a luscious, velvety sauce, and all it takes to season is a little salt and pepper. To make it really easy, we use frozen pearl onions, so if you can open a package, you can make this lovely dish!
