Onion Crusted Chicken

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by LDSMom128

I found this recipe on an envelope of an onion soup mix. This is very quick and easy to make and should take about 15 minutes to make. You can cook this in the oven if you want, but I prefer to cook it on the stove because it is faster that way. You can also use oil, but I like to use the PAM spray because I feel it is much more healthier. This can also be doubled if you have a large family to cook for.

I love the idea of the onion soup mix as breading. It smelled really cook whlie frying. My only problem was that the breading burnt before the chicken cooked all the way through. Aside from the slightly charred taste, the onion lended a nice flavor and it was definitely very simple. I'm going to try it again and see if I can perfect it next time.
