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.

How to Make Crunchy Cheddar & Onion Chicken Breast~Robynne

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 13x9x2" baking dish with 1/2 cup of melted butter.
  2. Sprinkle garlic salt on chicken breast and set aside.
  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.
  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.
