Funyun Chicken

I was drawn to this recipe because of the Funyuns. I LOVE Funyuns! This was really easy to make and the onion flavor was overwhelming. The chicken was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. We really liked it. I would make this again.

(Printable Recipe)

2 boneless chicken breast
1 oz. (about 15 pieces) Funyuns Onion Flavored Rings
1/2 oz. (about 7 crisps) Pringles Light Sour Cream & Onion fat-free potato crisps
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. onion powder, or more to taste
1/8 tsp. black pepper
2 dashes garlic powder, or more to taste
2 dashes salt, or more to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a large sealable plastic bag, combine Funyuns, Pringles, and seasonings. If you like, add extra seasonings to taste. Seal the bag and crush the chips until they're mostly reduced to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Transfer the seasoned crumbs to a plate, and set aside. Pour egg into a small bowl, and set that aside as well.

Prepare a large baking sheet by spraying with nonstick spray.

Take a chicken and dunk it in the egg -- use a spoon to distribute the egg over all of the chicken. Gently shake the chicken to remove any excess liquid, and then lay the chicken in the seasoned crumbs. Rotate the chicken, pressing it into the crumbs, until it is evenly coated. Use your fingers or a spoon to add and pat crumbs onto any bare spots on the chicken. Transfer to the baking sheet.

Bake in the oven for 25 - 30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and coating is crispy. Allow to cool for a few minutes, and then enjoy!
