Crunchy Barbecue Onion Chicken

Saturday, April 10, 2010

This is a fun new recipe I found in the Taste of Home Healthy Cooking magazine.   It was super quick and easy to make and despite me overcooking it slightly it still ended up being quite the crowd pleaser at our house.  The rich smoky flavor of the BBQ sauce combined with the crispy french fried onions, was definitely a winning combination!  We served it up with some BBQ dipping sauce and some ranch dressing, a fruit smoothie, and a salad.  It was a perfectly yummy weeknight dinner.

The ingredients:

*1/2 bottle BBQ sauce (plus more for dipping)
*1 can (6-oz.) french-fried onions, crushed
*1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. pepper
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 3 or 4 strips each

Directions:  Place barbecue sauce in a shallow bowl.  In another shallow bowl, combine the onions, cheese, and pepper.

Dip both sides of the chicken into the BBQ sauce, then into the onion mixture.

 Place chicken on a foil lined baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Bake at 400 degrees for 22-27 minutes (check at 22 minutes) or until chicken tests done.  Serve warm with more BBQ sauce (or ranch dressing) for dipping.  Serves 4.  Enjoy!

 *NOTE:  The measurements of the BBQ sauce, french-fried onions, or Parmesan cheese are very inexact.

Taste of Home Healthy Cooking? I feel like I'm missing out;D I haven't seen that copy yet. Lately I've been having such luck with their magazines. I can't resist them.

The chicken sounds delicious. Those french fried onions would make a great coating.
