Crispy Onion Chicken

This recipe is brought to you by my husband's love for french fried onions. We always have a can in our pantry and I have never used them. Well one day at Sam's club he decided he needed the giant bag of fried deliciousness and I have been staring at them in the pantry ever since. I came across this recipe in Taste of Home and decided to give it a try.


You don't need much to make this dish, just some chicken, worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, ground mustard, butter and a GIANT bag of french fried onions. Ok, a 6 oz can will actually work. Preheat your oven to 350, grease up a baking dish and lets get cooking.

yummy flavors
Melt your butter and add in the worcestershire sauce, garlic, mustard and salt and pepper.

ready to coat
Crunch up your onions and get the butter mix in a shallow dish.

Roll the chicken through the onions.

getting ready to bake
Pop the chicken in your greased baking dish and pour the remaining butter mixture over the chicken. Bake this for about a half an hour and prepare a side while it cooks.

Trader Joe's Grilled Asparagus
I tried these Trader Joes asparagus that are in their freezer section. They were ok, a little too mushy for my taste.

Get your chicken out of the oven and plate it up.

Crispy Onion Chicken and Asparagus
I just squeezed some lemon juice on the asparagus and I was ready to eat. The chicken turned out crispy and delicious and the leftovers made an awesome stir fry later in the week.


  1. I love anything with Worcestershire sauce :) yum!

  2. Okay, I have to admit, I don't mind those french fried onions - I usually only buy them around Thanksgiving though!

  3. What a great idea! I think my hubby would love this.

  4. That looks like a great idea for French fried onions! I haven't had those in a long time but, what an awesome way to put crunch on the chicken!

  5. I have never bought fried onions before, but you have convinced me. I'm always looking for more chicken recipes, yum!

  6. That crispy exterior must be so awesome!

  7. I love those onions so I know this chicken would be a huge hit for me. It looks fantastic!

  8. Sounds great! I one made some Hawaiian spam sliders with those crispy onions on top of the meat, and while I wasn't digging the spam, I think the onions would be good on a different type of slider.

  9. I love the delicious recipe my friend, onions are the best :D


  10. I have to admit that I like those crunchy onion rings too although I don't use them very often. The chicken looks delicious, Rhonda.

  11. Your chicken sounds really good,Rhonda! There are onion rings in the cabinet that I never know what to do with, and chicken in the freezer, so this is a go! Have a good weekend!

  12. Sam's Club / Costco really stress me out because I feel like I have to use giant quantities before they get wasted! And I fear wasting food.

    Smart way to use the onions...looks delicious!

  13. Mmmm this sounds great! I'd love those crunchy onion rings.

  14. I get a shipment of French's onions every year and now I want to make this chicken! :)

  15. I love the French's onions too. I would love to try this recipe, it sound delicious.
