Crunchy Onion Chicken

I’m back! Sorry I’ve been away for so long! Thought I’d share a very quick and easy chicken dish that I made tonight. This is not my recipe, but one that I found on the can of French’s French Fried Onions… and it’s so good! That is, if you like onions. It’s also pretty low in calories, so definitely guilt-free šŸ™‚

~ Makes 4 servings


  • 2 cups French’sĀ® OriginalĀ or Cheddar French Fried Onions
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ouncesĀ each)
  • 1 egg, beaten


  • In a resealable plastic bag, combine onions and flour. Lightly crush with hands or a rolling pin.
  • Transfer to pie plate or waxed paper.
  • Dip chicken into egg; then coat with onion mixture. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 400Ā° for 20 minutes or until juices run clear and no longer pink in the middle.


* To add a sweet & tangy taste, substitute 1/4 cup honey mustard instead of using the egg when coating the chicken with the onion pieces.
