Easy Onion Crusted Chicken Breasts

"This is a tasty recipe that we really enjoy. I got this recipe from a small deli that served the most delicious hot lunches. The deli changed ownership and shortly there after closed - luckily I had asked for their recipe and have been making it ever since."

  1. My family and I enjoy this recipe as quick comfort food. It is a crowd pleaser. We serve it with mashed potatoes and skillet green beans (green beans, garlic, and olive oil). I believe the spices are just right but will try adding garlic powder and maybe a little ground red pepper for a kick when the kids pallets allows.
  2. My wife and I did not know what to eat for dinner. While she was out shopping I looked @ Food.com and found this recipe. I tossed it together quickly and tossed it in the oven. It smelled great and tasted even better. My wife loved it. I followed the directions exactly and it was amazing. It is going into our folder of recipes.
  3. The first time i cooked this i followed this recipe. The second time i put the chicken on top of buttered fettuccine with mushrooms and topped it with alfredo sauce. turned out pretty good!!
  4. We made this as written, Was OK. It is almost identical to the recipe on the side of Durkee's French-fried onions can. I agree with the others that have rated this, it needs something more. 3 Star. Thanks for posting it.
  5. I made this dish tonight and we really thought it was great! The only changes I made was to double all of the ingredients except the chicken and add 1/2 tsp. garlic powder. It was really delish!
