Recipe by Tomas Weaver
"This chicken is moist inside with a crunchy onion outside. Great with mac and cheese and steamed asparagus. A great alternative to frying."

This is a pretty good and simple chicken recipe. There are other equally good and simple variations of this recipes I have made. One I have done is mixing seasoned bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. I have also made it as is, but subtituted french fried onions for the onion soup mix. I think the key is more likely the mayonaise that keeps the chicken tender. I also flatten the chicken slightly, so it cooks evenly. Only downside is that there is no sauce or gravy.
**EDIT NOTE: I made again today on the stove and it was even more "tender" and much quicker than baking. I used chicken tenderloins. I didn't have any more mayo so I used a mock buttermilk and let soak for 30 minutes. I then mixed the 1st two ingredients to taste using plain bread crumbs. I heated about 2 tablespoons of butter in a saute pan on medium and cooked on both sides for about 7-8 minutes total. I served this time, like a chicken tender, with Honey Mustard Dressing II also from the site.
chicken came out very moist bc of the mayonnaise but was a little salty from the onion mix; next time i will use a little less onion mix but will be coating my chicken in mayonnaise next time for sure, you dont even taste it
This is a great recipe. For better results, refrigerate the breaded chicken for about an hour. Really helps the panko and onion seasoning to stick to the chicken.
This really was good. Key to the coating adhering is to make sure you dry your chicken pieces well. I've used both whole, cut up chicken, and chicken breasts. Both turned out well. I love how easy it is. Takes but a few minutes to coat the chicken then you forget about it for the next 45 minutes or so while you make some side dishes. I forgot to add that I used regular breadcrumbs because that's all I had. I'm going to make this often.Thanks for a great, quick recipe.
This was okay, however the boyfriend enjoyed it. I found it a bit bland, so next time I will season the chicken well. I like a complex taste so I could be just too picky! I coated the chicken with the mix and refrigerated for one hour so the breading would stay on the chicken. Don't cut into the chicken if you can help it as the juices will cause the breading to become soggy and fall off. I also used Miracle Whip spread on with a knife as it is what we had and it was just fine
This is our new favorite! I did not have panko crumbs so I used Asian Honey Sesami coating instead with the soup mix. I did as suggested with other reviewers, I dried the chicken and did pound it. This was very moist and was loved by all.
When I need to get dinner in the oven quickly, this is the recipe I'll use! I didn't have onion soup mix, so I used a half packet of italian salad dressing mix and it was so good. I used chicken thighs and drumsticks...so moist!
I made this per the recipe.... it was moist and flavorful. Very easy to make. Will make it again.
