Crispy Onion Chicken
I've been going non stop for a whole week now. This move has proven to be overwhelming in more ways than one so I'm tired, I'm mentally and physically drained and I'm in serious cooking withdrawals.
One of the worst things for me is not being able to get into my kitchen and cook.
One week of moving, one week of yucky take out food. I have burgers and fries coming out my ears and do NOT want to see another greasy meal for a very long time.
Tonight, I finally got to finish getting my kitchen organized and packed and the first thing I did was put together a quick homemade meal. Even my kiddos licked their lips and declared it the best meal they've had in a week.
It's nothing special, nothing difficult to prepare, just a quick meal using pantry staples but it's comforting. The house may be a shambles, there may be boxes covering every inch of the floors, but our tummies are full with home cooked food and THAT is better than anything else.
BTW, I got this recipe many years ago and can't even remember where from but it's on our list of favorites :)
* 1/2 cup butter, melted
* 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
* 1 teaspoon ground mustard
* 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
* 1/4 teaspoon pepper
* 1 can (6 ounces) cheddar or original french-fried onions, crushed
* 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
In a shallow bowl, combine the butter, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic salt and pepper. In another shallow bowl, add 1/2 cup-fried onions. Dip chicken in the butter mixture, then coat with onions.
Place in a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Top with remaining onions; drizzle with any remaining butter mixture. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Yield: 4 servings.
