    We will enjoy this again and again. Served with yellow rice and a tossed salad for a very nice weekday dinner. Thank you, Jennifer, for this keeper recipe!

    My family loves this. It's easy and fast. I add honey to the butter and worcestershire mix, and I season the chicken with pepper and granulated garlic. I use a cast iron skillet and broil at the very end to crisp up the chicken.

    I made this tonight to rave reviews from the family! The only changes were I added granulated garlic to the crushed onions. The chicken was so tender and flavorful. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you for the recipe!

    I want to do this tonight but don't have the french fried onions in the pantry so will use corn flakes and add smoke paprika. Will let you know how that turns out

    Loved this! Even my husband, NotAnOnionFan, thought it was good and said he would eat it again. A welcome addition to our healthy-eating recipe collection.

    We love this recipe. My husband is not a chicken lover but enjoys this whenever I make it. I also cut down on the butter. To keep the chicken from getting soggy I sprinkle the onions on top after coating the chicken with the butter sauce. Very moist and flavorful.
