Easiest Chicken Dinner Ever
Seriously, I don’t even like to own up to this recipe. It is one of Joel’s favorites and anyone who ever eats it always wants to know how to make it…but the recipe is a little embarrassing! All that being said, I am going to share it because it needs to be done. I have to own it and I do. I’ve been making this chicken dish for years and hopefully when you make it, everyone will love it and you won’t have to admit how super easy it is and how there are hardly any ingredients at all. Enjoy! I owe you all this one. It is the perfect meal when you don’t have a lot of time to prepare, marinate, shop , etc.
1 lb. thin chicken filets (approx. 4)
6 oz can French’s french fried onion rings
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp flour
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Crush onion rings. (I place them in a large Ziploc bag and bang on them until they’re all crushed up. It’s fun!) Add the 2 tablespoons of flour to the bag, shake it up and place in a shallow bowl or plate.
Pat each cutlet dry with paper towels, dip in the egg, then dip in the crushed onion rings. Youwill have to push down on onion rings with a spoon so they adhere. Place on sprayed (Pam) cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
That’s it, enjoy!
I served this last night with rice and a chickpea, tomato, and feta salad (I will post salad recipe shortly).
