Can it get any easier? This chicken is so tender and moist! From a French's ad in Family Circle Magazine. Makes a tasty meal when there is little time to cook. Also would make a good sandwich. ***NOTES*** 3/1/2009, I just saw this recipe printed in a new magazine and they now have you add one tablespoon of flour to the crushed French Fried onions. It helps the pieces adhere to the chicken better. 10/19/2010, one of the reviewers offered a new tip: substitute a flavored mustard for the egg if you enjoy the tanginess of mustard. Great idea!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crush French Fried Onions in a plastic bag.
  2. Dip chicken into egg, then coat in onion crumbs.

This is a very easy, quick, and yummy way to cook up chicken!! I found this in a French's ad and followed the recipe according to their "zesty" tip which was to use 1/4 cup of any flavored mustard instead of the egg (I used Dijon mustard). My husband and I both thought the mustard added to the flavor of the chicken, but if you don't at least sort of like mustard I would stick with the version with the egg :) Great recipe!!

A fabulous and super easy recipe. I used chicken cutlets so cooked in about 15 minutes. I crushed the onions in the mini food processor. Served with honey mustard.

Delicious and easy! I was worried about the crumbs adhering, so I just added them on the top side only. I pressed down on the crumbs, drizzling a bit of leftover egg over to help them stick. I baked on a Silipat mat, too. I did use the tbs. flour, plus 1 1/2 cups of onion crumbs. The chicken turned out very moist, too. The whole family liked and I will be sure to make again. Thanks for the great recipe! Roxygirl
