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
3 or 4 chicken breasts (about a pound of chicken)
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.
