Crunchy Onion Chicken

I am a sucker for good marketing.

So, I was watching television and saw this commercial for French's French Fried Onions.  You know, that can of stuff you only buy at Thanksgiving to put on top of the green bean casserole?  That's the stuff.  I saw this commercial and found out that there's other things you can make with it!  You learn something new everyday.

I used less ingredients than the recipe called for because my children eat like birds unless it's chili or tacos.  I bought the small can of French Fried Onions...

Seriously, not just for Thanksgiving.

I crushed them up with about a tablespoon of flour and put them in a dish.  In another dish, I had a beaten egg and of course, I had some chicken.  I used three smallish chicken breasts and I cut them up into smaller portions.  In addition, I added one child doing homework.  Totally necessary for this recipe.

Cutting up the chicken makes it look like I'm making more food.  I feel more professional that way.  Of course, it's all for show.  YOU GUYS SEE RIGHT THROUGH ME.

I dipped the chicken into the egg...

And then into the onion mixture...

And then I baked them.  They baked for about 20 minutes in a 400 degree oven.  And they smelled awesome.

So, is it worth buying the French Fried Onions for an occasion other than Thanksgiving?  Yep.  It was pretty darn good.  And easy.  And quick.  And there's almost always a coupon for them.  Give them a try, your picky children might like them.

  1. Yummy. May have to try this one. We like to add them on top of mashed potatoes. They have a great flavor.

  2. Great post! This sounds great, but did the boys enjoy them? I'll miss your regular weekly posts, but super excited for your holiday fun again this year!!!

  3. It's a good thing that chicken don't mind being described as having 'smallish' breasts :)

    This recipe looks delicious and easier than the homework :)

  4. Ooohhh, this makes my mouth water! (And looks easy enough for even me to make) I'm your newest follower :)
