2 cups original or cheddar french fried onions
1 tbsp cajun seasoning, or to taste
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix french fried onions and cajun seasoning in ziplock bag. Crush onions with rolling pin or your hands.
Place in a shallow dish or pie pan.
Dip chicken in egg, then coat in onion crumbs, pressing firmly to adhere.
Place chicken on a cooling rack placed on top of a cookie sheet. This allows the oven heat to surround the chicken, keeping the coating crunchy.
Bake for 20 minutes or no longer pink in the center.
Great alternative: Crunchy Cajun Pork Chops
Follow the recipe above, but substitute pork chops for the chicken. Baking time and temperature remain the same.
