I’m always on the hunt for good food made with chicken breast. It is a staple in our house and I know that no matter what, my family will always eat chicken breast (unless it’s smothered in mushrooms!).
When I came across this recipe in a back issue of one of my favorite magazines, Taste of Home (you can purchase a subscription to the magazine HERE!), I knew this was one I HAD to try! The recipe was a winner indeed at our house and found a home in our winter dinner time rotation. The more I made this dish, the more comfortable I became and after awhile, I just began to toss in the amounts and ingredients I thought were in the recipe instead of searching for the recipe itself. Before long, my "version" was the one we preferred and made. Let that be a tip to you to not be afraid to experiment with a recipe once you get it down! Another tip is once you find a new tweak to an old standby, write it down. This will save you having to make it a ton of times to figure out what you did. Ask me how I know this;)
So go ahead and give my take on this tasty chicken a try and I think you will agree that nothing taste better than warm and crunchy onion chicken on a cold and blustery day!
Crunchy Onion Chicken
Prep Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes | Serves: 4
- 1 lb. chicken breast
- 6 ounces crispy onion flakes (one container)
- 1 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- salt, to taste
- peper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- Sean chicken breast with salt and pepper to preference
- In a shallow bowl, mix butter, mustard, onion powder and Worcestershire sauce until well combined
- In another shallow bowl, pour in crispy onion flakes. Using your hands or a food mallet, crush the onion flakes until they are crumbly but not too fine
- Dip one chicken breast in the butter mixture and coat throughly, then transfer to onion mixture
- Press onion mixture into chicken on all sides until gently coated and place in a greased baking dish
- Repeat with all other chicken breasts and drizzle any remaining butter over the coated breasts
- Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through (it will be white in the center and when poked, any juices that come out will be clear)
- Enjoy with your favorite sides-mashed potatoes go great with this!
