Made this tonight. Just two of us so I cut the recipe in half. I lined the baking dish with aluminum foil, put a rack in the dish, sprayed the rack with non-stick spray. Laid the breasts on top, drizzled the remaining butter on top. Baked for 40 minutes because the breasts were large. They came out perfect. Putting them on a rack they did not get soggy, and they were tender and juicy. A keeper. Will make again.

What do you do about the soggy bottom?

I made this recipe for dinner tonight, using the new Caramelized Onion flavor French-fried onions. They are a bit sweeter than the regular onion topping, but the mustard in the butter mixture balanced that out nicely. It came together nicely, and the topping did stick to the chicken. Don't worry about the amount of butter -- it seemed that any extra remelted and drained off the chicken.

I halved the breasts, used half the butter called for, twice the onions called for and after they were done put them on a rack over the pan I cooked them in, spooned the juices on them and let them rest in the oven at 200 for a few minutes to let them crisp up. Excellent. :)

This is one of the best ways to fix chicken!! The French-fried onions complement the chicken very nicely!! It's a keeper!!

I found garlic-pepper flavored fried onions in the produce department, so I omitted the garlic salt and pepper. Turned out great!

I thought this was really good and easy for a |weeknight dinner. I took some of the otherReviewer recommendations and used a broiler pan in the over so the onions wouldn't become soggy.

Family loved this. I also used evoo instead of butter. Nice flavor. I did had just a touch of flour to the onion rings to help hold the mixture on the chicken. Next time zip think I will marinate the chicken in this sauce for a couple of hours before dredging in onions and baking.

Great flavor, but as others said, too much butter. I will definitely make again with half the butter or olive oil as suggested by others. Only about half of the onions were needed to coat the chicken well, so I would suggest starting with half the can, then add more if needed.
