Recipe: Crunchy Onion Chicken

I struggle with ‘what to cook for dinner’ sometimes. Especially when it is hot outside and I just dread turning the oven on when it is hot. But, if the meal takes less than 30 minutes to cook – what’s the harm. And, I had some left-over crunchy onion strings to use and decided to make this classic chicken recipe. If you’ve never tried it, please do. I think you’ll like it.

Crunchy Onion Chicken

1 2.8 can of French Fried Onions – plain or cheddar flavored
1 egg
3 or 4 chicken breasts (about a pound of chicken)

Chicken, Egg, French Fried Onions - thats it.
Chicken, Egg, French Fried Onions - that's it.
Wash and dry the chicken.  

Pour onions into a Ziplock bag and bash with a rolling pin until crumbly or grind in food processor.  Pour into a shallow bowl.

Beat egg in a shallow bowl.  (I put a little salt and pepper in my egg.)
Roll chicken in egg.
Roll the chicken in the onion crumble.
Place in a greased casserole dish and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes until the chicken meat is no longer pink.
(Sorry I do not have a picture of the ‘cooked’ chicken because two hungry men came into my kitchen and wiped it out the second it came out of the oven).
See!  Easy-Schmeezy chicken and you could probably come-up with some sauces to roll the chicken in instead of egg.  What about ranch dressing? Or Catalina dressing? Or Bar-B-Que?  Hmmmm – I may to try that next time. 
Y’all Enjoy!  😉

    I did some steamed broccoli, some stewed carrots with butter/parsley, and sour cream/cheese macaroni. The boys scarfed it up!
