Crispy Onion Chicken

After surveying my pantry I found a little bit of French's fried onions left over from green bean casserole season. That season...it runs through Thanksgiving and Christmas if you didn't know. I bet grocery stores sell 97.5% of their fried onions in the last two months of the year.

Rather than tossing them I set out to find another use for them. I created this yummy chicken from something that would have been garbage.

I am thrifty like that...

I am totally the person who scoops more then their fair share of fried onions from the famous casserole. I bet some of you are the same way. With my love of these fried onions I am wondering why it has taken me so long to find another excuse to eat them.

I had some chicken already thawed out, so I whipped up this super quick and easy dinner. It was delicious and a great way to update a plain boring chicken breast!

If you get a chance to try it, make sure you come back and let me know! It always brightens my day to see where someone tried my recipe...






4 Chicken breasts

1/4 cup Dijon Mustard

2 cups French's Fried Onions

In a large zip top bag crush the fried onions with a rolling pin. Dip the chicken breasts in the Dijon mustard until coated. Place the crushed fried onions in a small baking dish. Roll each chicken breast into the onion mixture. Place on a baking sheet.

Bake at 400 until cooked, about 20-25 minutes.



Do you have any recipes using these delicious french fried onions? If so, please share...
