Have you ever had French Fried Onions?  I don’t know what is it about them but I could literally eat them out of the can.  When I was a kid my mom used to make the green bean casserole with these on top and I would pick the onions off the top and then eat the casserole if I was still hungry.
Crispy Onion Chicken is an easy to make meal!

Twenty years later and I’m still the same way.  Only now French’s has Cheddar French Fried Onions which is just a whole other ball game.  I had a coupon to buy these last week and they were on sale so I bought the big can.  I wanted to make something a little different and ended up turning them in to a coating  for this Crispy Onion Chicken.

Just a handful of ingredients make a Crispy Onion Chicken dish!

This recipe had only a handful of ingredients and was delicious.  I loved the crunchy fried onion crust with the juicy chicken inside.  The onions made a perfect crust for the chicken.  I can’t wait to try this with pork or even fish!
