Reviews for Crispy Onion Chicken
"This is one of our very favorite meals. It is on our menu every several weeks. I substitute olive oil for the butter and it is so good. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."
"chicken was very moist, but just too oniony for our tastes. Perhaps, if I had read the other reviews about cutting down on butter and using the cheddar onions we might have liked it more."
"to much butter baked for 40 minuted and chicken not done and onions not crispy. put on a broiler pan and baked another 15 minutes in my convection oven to finish cooking the chicken. i made it exactly like the recipe. will try again and use just enought butter to make onions stay on chicken before baking"
"Superb!! I followed the other reviews which suggested using half the amount of butter, and I used the cheddar French fried onions. I also sliced the chicken breasts in half to make them thinner. Thirty minutes in the oven yielded a crispy, juicy, delicious meal my family loved!"
"My husband and I loved this recipe!! The batter is delicious and perfect. We will likely use more onions next time because we like it extra crunchy, but it's otherwise perfect!"
"So amazing! Staple in my chicken rotation. I use the cheddar onions."
"Good flavor, but turned out a little greasier than I like. I will make these again, but next time will cook them on a wire rack to cut down on that."
