Crunchy Onion Chicken
Savory Pork Chops

(Family Features) - You make good chicken, but you are always on the lookout for a way to make it better!  Just in time for the busy back-to-school dinner table, the makers of French's French Fried Onions have developed some exciting ways to add crunch, flavor and excitement by turning weeknight chicken into a family favorite.

It's not surprising chicken can be mundane. The average American consumes about 81 pounds of chicken (Source: National Chicken Council and the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association) every year!  Not only is that a lot of chicken for Mom to cook, she also must balance between recipes that are easy and quick to prepare and exciting food the whole family will appreciate.

Now it is easier to add spark to your tried and true baked chicken. Instead of breadcrumbs use crushed French fried onions to create a delicious coating for boneless breasts of chicken. Simply coat the chicken in crushed French fried onions and bake. In fact in any recipe, you can easily replace breadcrumbs with crushed French fried onions; one cup breadcrumbs for one cup of crushed onions. This tasty solution will rejuvenate your recipes with delicious crunch and flavor that will revitalize your family dinners with food your family will love.

Feeling inspired. Try this quick and easy chicken recipe tonight!
