  • 6 ounces French-fried onions
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Generously coat a large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place the French-fried onions in a large, sealed plastic storage bag and use a rolling pin or kitchen mallet to crush them. Measure out and reserve ¼ cup of the crushed French-fried onions for later. Place remaining crushed onions in a shallow dish (a pie plate works perfectly) and toss with flour to combine. In a separate shallow dish, combine melted butter, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, and garlic.
  • Slice or pound chicken to ½-inch thickness and cut into smaller portion size pieces, if desired. Season each side with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Dip chicken in oil mixture, then coat with onion mixture and place on prepared baking sheet.  Drizzle each piece of chicken with about 1 teaspoon of the remaining oil mixture and then top with some of the reserved crushed onions as needed to coat chicken well.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink in center. Cooking time will depend on thickness of chicken.


I found the French-fried onions in the canned vegetable aisle at the grocery store.
