Personal Review: This is a recipe that I’ve been making for a few years now. It’s super easy to make, it definitely takes longer to bake than to prepare – something that I appreciate in a recipe now that I have a crazy 9 month old son who can’t sit still!

The only thing that might be a little off-putting to someone is that there is a very distinct mustard taste. It doesn’t bother me, but it is something that you can really taste in this recipe. But then you put the french fried onions on – and who can beat that? Ha!

There’s not much for me to say about this recipe other than that I hope it peaks your interest enough to try it. We definitely enjoy it in our house. Served with a salad, veggie and potato and  you’ve got a great meal!

And it makes me realize that I have a million different ways of making chicken 🙂

  1. Stacy – my husband Nathan doesn’t like onions either and he loves this recipe. So it must not taste too oniony (I can’t tell … I *love* onions!)
