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.

Crispy Onion Chicken

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 :)

Crispy Onion Chicken

Crispy Onion Chicken

* 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.

  1. That looks delicious Sandra. I know how you feel about missing home cooked food. One time when my ex and I moved I spent 21 days in a hotel room with 3 children (one a newborn baby) and a cat. I was so glad when we were finally into our PMQ and I was able to cook a meal again! xxoo

  2. What a great way to cook chicken Sandra.

    Looks delicious....


  3. That really looks yummy. Home cooked is ALWAYS so much better that eating out. Now that you have your kitchen sorted out, the rest will follow.

  4. It looks like the chicken is in a pan on the stove? Can it be cooked that way too or will the onions burn? Not used to cooking those onions.
