My family loves this chicken. The French's French Fried Onions give this moist, cheesy coated chicken the extra special goodness that we all love. Disclaimer: I have always used recipes as a guide and use my instincts and experience to alter or omit ingredients as I cook. Therefore, it has always been a challenge when sharing recipes with others. I doubt I make dishes the same way twice. So, I advise you to use my recipes the same way.

How To Make crunchy cheddar & onion chicken breast~robynne

  • Melted butter in a baking dish.
    1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 13x9x2" baking dish with 1/2 cup of melted butter.
  • Garlic salt sprinkled on chicken breasts.
    2
    Sprinkle garlic salt on chicken breast and set aside.
  • Preparing three dredging bowls.
    3
    In a bowl, mix the flour, salt, pepper, and granulated garlic. In a second bowl, beat together the egg and milk. In a third bowl, mix the cheese, bread crumbs, fried onions, and cereal. Dredge chicken in the flour mixture, then dip in the egg mixture, then press in the breadcrumb mixture to coat.
  • Coated chicken in baking dish with butter.
    4
    Arrange the chicken (do not overcrowd) in the prepared baking dish. Drizzle 4 tablespoons melted butter evenly over chicken. (My family loves extra crunchies, so I make sure to add some of the leftover bread crumbs between the chicken before adding the butter.)

    5
    Bake 35-45 minutes or until coating is golden brown and chicken juices run clear.
