"Very easy & quick, really tasty. I used Dijon for the mustard & used a large can of French fried onions for extra coating. Will make it again."

"Amazing. I use chicken breast so I have to flatten the meat or cook it longer than the suggested time to make sure it is done. This tastes incredible!"

"Yummy and so very easy to make on a week night. I made these this evening using the chicken thighs. Smelled great cooking. I agree with others that it is a keeper recipe, but I will cut back on the butter next time. They were just a bit too greasy, but definitely yummy."

"I love this chicken!! It is a quick and easy, go to weeknight dinner. The chicken is crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside! Yummy!! The only change I made was adding a little garlic powder and crushed red pepper flakes to the onions. I would also suggest trying the Spicy Garlic Green Beans pictured with it, they are equally as delicious and a nice accompaniment to the chicken."

"Made this today but only half recipe. I did use more than half the onions, so they were covered. I didn't grease the pan, since I used a stone bar pan. I think I will cut some of the butter the next time. This is really very tasty and I will make it again."

"The first time I saw this recipe in one of my cookbooks, I thought great! French fried onions, few ingredients! My husband absolutely loved it and ever since, has asked me to make it at least once a week. I do change it slightly, though. I've never actually used boneless skinless chicken breasts. I've either used boneless skinless chicken tenders or boneless skinless chicken thighs (increasing the cooking time for the dark meat). My husband and I both agree that the thighs are the way to go - if you prefer dark meat! I do not put the onions on the bottom of the chicken because it did get a little mushy the first time I made it. Also, I do not use a whole stick of butter - I use a 1/4 cup of butter and a 1/4 cup of extra light olive oil - still great flavor! Definitely a keeper in our house!"

"I love french fried onions so when I saw this I thought it would be VERY good and is a great idea. However... After baking it the onions on the bottom turn soggy (I don't care for soggy onions) and the flavor wasn't as I expected. I thought with the mustard and worcheshire it would be excellent but didn't quite keep the flavor next time I will try keeping the butter out of the bottom more and see if that helps."
