    Very tasty! The crust was crispy. I will make this on a regular basis. So tender and flavorful!

    I'm only giving this 4 stars cause my son liked it. I didn't dislike it, but if it weren't for his really liking it and commenting on the smell before it was served, I'd never make it again. While the chicken came out surprisingly juicy for baked chicken without a proper sear, the fried onions were soggy. Guess I was expecting them to still be crispy. I think I could have the same result having just used the honey mustard. The onions on the bottom were mush. The only way around this that I know of would be to apply the onions 5 minutes or so before done and just on one side.

    I made this tonight, have made several times. Have never used honey mustard will have to try next time. Have always used mayo or egg.

    I enjoyed the simplicity of this recipe. Since I didn't have enough fried onions, I mixed what I had with onion soup mix. It was somewhat salty, but tasty.

    Simple recipe, but lots of flavor. FYI: This takes much longer than 25 min to bake, more like 40-45 min.
