Crispy onion chicken is packed full of flavor from the creamy honey mustard and crispy fried onions. Life-in-the-Lofthouse.comSometimes I look back on my old recipe photos and cringe! :/ I’m always thinking, ‘I need to update that pic pronto!’ but never find time to with all the new recipes I’m wanting to share. Then I remind myself that I should keep the old photos because it’s a reminder of how far I’ve come with my food photography. Not that I’m a pro, but I have definitely improved. lol

That being said, this Crispy Onion Chicken is an old recipe you can find >> HERE that was begging for a new picture. Since I make this chicken a TON I shot some new pics the last time we had it. It is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, and the flavor is incredible!

My picky-kid eaters that don’t even like onions will eat this chicken right up. If you haven’t tried this delicious chicken recipe yet, then please do so as soon as you can. It is for sure one of the top fave chicken recipes my family loves! 🙂

  1. For those of us who hate mustard, is there anything I could use to substitute? Would mayo work? Or maybe some kind of dressing?

    1. Sarah- I have a friend that makes this chicken and she hates mustard!! So you may want to try it as is. OR I would try ranch dressing to coat it in first. Let me know if you try it 🙂

  2. Is it ok if the chicken breasts are still a little frozen on the inside when prepping, or do they have to be completely defrosted for best results?

  3. I like the idea and flavor of this recipe, however as soon as you cut into the chicken all of the French onions fall off the top of the chicken. Again, good flavors, but was a bit disappointing it all just came off. Any idea how to prevent this?

  4. 5 stars
    I made a quick lunchtime version of this using Tyson ready chicken breast, O’Charley’s honey mustard dressing, and crispy onion tanglers from the produce section, using my air fryer oven. Served it up sandwich style with bacon also done in the AF and it was the best sandwich ever. Sooo good! Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. I have also tried this receipe using BBQ sauce instead of honey mustard – I would think ranch dressing would also be good!
