Crunchy Onion Chicken Tenders

    A few weeks ago our son found one of those "back of the box" recipes that worked out really good with chicken breasts. It was on the back of the French's onions box (the one that's a classic in green bean casserole). 
    In this recipe you use an egg to coat the chicken pieces and then they are rolled in crushed french fried onions for a coating. That's not hard at all. The chicken was tender inside with a nice crunch on the outside. This was a quick and easy dinner.
