My family loves chicken...and I'm always trying new ways to prepare it. This golden brown chicken with its crunchy french-fried onion coating is great with rice, baked potatoes, macaroni salad or potato salad. -Charlotte Smith, McDonald, Pennsylvania

"So amazing! Staple in my chicken rotation. I use the cheddar onions."

MY REVIEW

"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."

"This was a quick and easy recipe with such a delicious result. I served this to my picky eaters for dinner and they went back for seconds and even thirds! I will be adding this to our regular rotation for sure"

"Great recipe. Easy, moist and delicious without alterations. I did make a change to the recipe when my husband bought home French's French Fried Onions in cheddar flavor. The cheddar flavor gave the chicken such a WONDERFUL taste, I ended up eating 3 of the 4 pieces!"

MY REVIEW

"Best chicken recipe I have ever made. Easy to put prepare, outstanding flavor. Thicker breasts have to cook a little longer than the recommended time but that may be because of my oven. Highly recommended!"
