Onion Chicken

I’ve had this recipe in my drawer since 2009 but haven’t made it until tonight. Why did I wait so long? We all loved it!

The recipe paper says that it was printed off from AllRecipes and is courtesy of French’s.  Here’s the link to the recipe at the French’s website:  French’s Crunchy Onion Chicken


2 chicken breasts

2 cups French’s Original French Fried Onions (I used original but the recipe says you could use the Cheddar onions)

2 tbsp. all purpose flour

1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

I purchased three huge chicken breasts, sliced them up into 10 pieces and used 5 pieces tonight.  The other pieces were popped into a freezer container and into the freezer.

Beat the egg.

Mix the flour and French Fried Onions together, smashing up the onions.  The recipe said to put the onions and flour into a plastic bag and crush the onions with your hands or a rolling pin, then transfer them to a plate or waxed paper.  I didn’t want to smash the onions into oblivion, so I used my spoon and left some of the pieces big.

The recipe states that you should dip the chicken into the egg, then coat it with the onion and flour mixture.  That’s not what I did; first I tossed the chicken into the onion and flour mixture:

Then, I dropped the chicken into the egg and coated it with egg:

And then it went back into the onion and flour mixture:

I do the same with my fried chicken.  It puts a nice coating on.  The recipe said to place the chicken on a baking sheet and didn’t mention oiling the pan.  I grabbed my olive oil and slathered about 3 tablespoons of olive oil on my cookie sheet and then dribbled a touch of oil on each chicken piece.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes.  Check the chicken’s internal temperature:  it should read 160 degrees F.  Let chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Nice and oniony!  Is oniony a word?  I don’t think so….oh well.  The chicken didn’t need any other seasoning, either, because of the onions.

I fixed smashed potatoes and corn.  Everyone filled their tummies and there were no leftovers.  Both of the guys told me to make it again and not wait 3 more years to do so LOL
