It is Friday and they are calling for snow. It has become a four letter word around here. Yes, I know it really does have four letters, but I mean four letters in that it must NEVER be uttered in my presence. Especially by some bald headed man in a suit mocking me through the TV screen as he sings the praises of a winter wonderland.
Ain't nobody singing in our home. They wouldn't dare. It will send me over the edge.
And, we won't even discuss Groundhog Day, K? I see my shadow all the time and all it tells me is that I need to lose weight. Maybe good old Phil needs to go on a diet and stop predicting that spring will never be upon us.
So, are you ready for a simple and yummy recipe with my favorite ingredient (chicken)? It will fill up your tummy; however, it doesn't promise to be kind to your breath. But, it is worth it. Really.
I noticed that I had some cans of these weird french fried onions laying around after the holidays:
I had two choices. I could find a way to use them now, or throw them away. I am pretty sure they shouldn't sit around for a year. I have only used them in my green bean casseroles for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. While I do enjoy a tasty green bean casserole during the holidays, I almost never make it any other time.
After a little research, I found a recipe that was a winner.
Crunchy Onion Chicken~
(Not EVER Meant For a Date Night)
2 cups (4 oz) French fried onions
2 Tablespoons flour4 boneless chicken breasts
1 egg, beaten
1. Crush the onions with flour in a plastic bag.
2. Dip chicken in egg and then coat in onion crumbs.
3. Bake 20 minutes at 400 degrees until cooked through.
This stuff is very tasty and so simple. Now I just might have to buy some more of these french fried onions before the holidays of 2010.
Happy Friday everyone!
