    Delicious! I served this simple chicken with spaghetti on the side. The onion soup mix definitely gave it an extra boost of flavor.

    This is a wonder recipe. I have made it several times. It is also great the next day for lunch. To cut out carbs and calories, I just roll the chicken in the dry onion soup and bake. I also do not use the mushrooms and it is still as good as the original.

    I am not a fan of Chicken Parmesan, but thought I would try this. It was delicious, and I will definitely make it again. My husband really like it, too! I used a whole jar of spaghetti sauce, though, and that gave more sauce for the pasta I served with it.
