6-Ingredient Crispy Baked French Onion Chicken Recipe Is a 30-Minute Dinner Winner

We love quick and easy chicken recipes with minimal ingredients, easy prep and that cook fast. This crispy baked french onion chicken recipe hits on all marks. It has six ingredients, simple prep and bakes in 15 to 20 minutes.

The chicken breasts are seasoned with salt and pepper before being slathered with a mixture of mayonnaise, Dijon mustard (dijonnaise) and freshly grated Parmesan cheese. The chicken is then sprinkled with seasoned breadcrumbs and crushed french fried onions. The chicken bakes in the oven until cooked through. Simple and so tasty.

Serve this juicy baked chicken for dinner with a salad, vegetablegrain or your favorite side dishes. For a change, try this same recipe but use pork chops.
