Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat eggs in a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Spread the French fried onions on a plate. Dip each chicken breast into the egg, then coat one side of the chicken breast with the fried onion. Place chicken with onions on top on a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  3. Bake the chicken breasts in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Place one slice of provolone cheese on top of each chicken breast and return the pan to the oven, baking until the cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes.

This was very good. The key is to liberally season the chicken with salt and pepper before dipping in the egg. I dipped just the top of the chicken breast in egg, as that was the only part being dipped in the onions. I also crushed the fried onions to help them better cover the chicken. My chicken breasts were very large, so I added extra cheese during the last step. The directions don't state whether to cover while baking. I did not at first, but noticed the onions became dark very quickly. I covered the baking dish with foil for about 20 minutes, then uncovered to crisp the onions during the last 10 minutes. Because of the size of the chicken breasts, my cooking time was also longer.

Very good. Also felt it was missing something. Next time I will try to dip the chicken in dijon instead of the egg.

This is a wonderful recipe! I have made this without the cheese before but it is so good with the provolone! I can't wait to make it again!!
