"Yummy and easy! This is a keeper!"

MY REVIEW

"I made this recipe exactly as written. It was delicious, my husband and daughter raved about it and the onions were the reason. The only thing I would do different is like Paul3303 said, use a rack and elevate the chicken. The tops were so crispy, but the bottoms were soggy. This is a keeper and I will make it many times after that one change."

MY REVIEW

"This is one of the best of this type of oven-baked "fried" chicken recipes that I have ever tried - in fact, it may be the best. My husband gave it 5 stars! I think it is the French-fried onions that make the difference. Thanks for sharing!"
