    The picky eaters in my house loved this one. I used large chicken breasts, so next time I'll increase the amount of onions. Also used prepared honey mustard instead of ground mustard.

    We really enjoyed this recipe. Full disclosure, I used pork chops because that’s what I had on hand, and they were delicious. Will definitely make this again. VFE

    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.

    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!
