DIRECTIONS

  • In a food processor or blender, process French fried onions on high for about 30 seconds or until finely ground. The moisture in them may make the mixture feel like a paste, but so long as it retains some texture it will work. Pour Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper into French fried onion mixture and stir to combine thoroughly.
  • Fill a large pot, Dutch oven or deep fryer about halfway full with oil (I use Canola, which is healthier and doesn't affect flavor). Turn to medium high heat and let heat until the surface shimmers. Test heat by dropping a pinch of the French fried onion mixture (or flour) into oil; if it begins to cook instantly, the oil is ready.
  • Place three plates or large bowls side-by-side near the pot of heated oil. Place chicken breasts on first plate, pour beaten eggs onto second plate, and place French fried onion mixture onto third plate. Dip chicken breast, one at a time, into egg, coating each side, then do the same in the French fried onion mixture. The amount of chicken to cook at a time depends on the size of your pot or fryer, but do not overcrowd. Cook for about 1 minute or until the coating on the chicken is dark brown. Continue until all chicken is fried. Place finished chicken breasts on a plate with a paper towel or two on it to absorb excess grease. Enjoy!
