This Cheesy Onion Chicken received rave reviews in our house! They were SOOOOO good!!! Chicken coated in French fried onions, parmesan cheese, garlic and panko bread crumbs. YUM! The flavor is fantastic! These can be made ahead of time and frozen for later - baked or unbaked.
This recipe is for two pounds of chicken tenders. I made the whole recipe, and we ate these for lunch and leftover for dinner. They are great on their own or chopped up on top of a salad or in a wrap. We have made these a few times and they are always a hit!
We bake the chicken on a foil lined baking sheet and spray them with a little cooking spray before baking. They turn out nice and crispy!!!
