This is my husband's favorite chicken dish and it's so easy to fix! I usually serve it with a salad and chicken stuffing or mashed potatoes. Sometimes I use chicken tenders instead of chicken breasts.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is a tremendously satisfying and easy chicken dish to make on a weeknight. The seasoned butter adds flavor and helps to seal in moisture. Chicken breasts are dipped in the butter and then crushed French fried onions. Once baked, the onions crisp and add a little crunch. Serve with a few simple side dishes for a delicious dinner.
