Especially during the week I hate spending a ton of time making dinner. I am always looking for great flavors with the least amount of effort and I am pretty sure I am not the only one! This Crunchy Barbecue Onion Chicken is definitely a long time favorite around here!
I am always looking for different ways to serve chicken but then again, isn’t everyone? This Crunchy Barbecue Onion Chicken not only tastes wonderful but I always have barbecue sauce, parmesan cheese and crispy fried onions in my pantry so at any given moment I can make these chicken breasts!
I have even, especially when my son was small, sliced the chicken into strips or chunks and made chicken fingers or nuggets! All you have to do is adjust your cooking time from 25 to 30 minutes for the strips and 20-25 minutes for the nuggets. Truthfully, the timing is difficult to exactly predict because everyone’s idea of of a strip or a nugget is so different!
Let me tell you that both kids and adults alike love this Crunchy Barbecue Onion Chicken recipe, no matter how you serve it. I have served it with some barbecue sauce to dip the chicken in at times but it definitely does not need it!
