Savory Onion Chicken


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 to 4 pounds), cut up and skin removed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) beer or nonalcoholic beer


  • 1. Place 2 tablespoons flour in a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat. In a large skillet, brown chicken in oil on all sides. Remove and keep warm.
  • 2. Add soup mix and remaining flour, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Gradually whisk in beer. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.

    Delicious! I loved this super easy recipe. I served it with mashed potatoes, stove-top dressing and green beans.

    My BF and I both love this. Great taste and so easy, Others have said BLah, make sure you use Lipton onion soup (not off brand) and I used a good brand of beer (again not off brand).

    He is a OTR and I will freeze a lot of the leftovers for him to take with. Does anyone know if this will freeze well??

    It may be the brand of onion soup mix I used or maybe the brand of beer but this did not work for me at all. The sauce was bitter.

    I was alittle nervous to try this but am so glad I did. The two taste combined were really good. Give it a try.
