Tender, tasty chicken breasts baked with butter, salt, pepper, and oniony seasoning. All ages like these - my 3 year old loves them! This can be served with mashed potatoes or with rice. Very tasty for the whole family.

I needed something quick for dinner tonight and this fit with what I had on hand. I wish I would have read the reviews first I agree that it was too salty. I did it different though. I mixed the soup mix with some seasoned bread crumbs. I dipped the tenders into the butter then into the soup mix and crumb mixture and then put it into the pan. I drizzled the left over butter over the top of the tenders then put into the oven. They were tasty and quick. Next time I may reduce the soup mix to cut some salt. Read More

I made this because it was such a quick meal to fix...This recipe is a good example of the importance of not being in a hurry! Way too salty...overpowering flavor from the onion soup packet. Not very good at all. Read More

This was surprisingly good. I did think it was too salty as well from the mix. I would advise to use 1/2 as well. Read More

Really surprisingly tasty and satisfying. I omitted the extra salt & pepper and only used 1/2 packet for 4 chicken breasts. Just sprinkle on as you would any seasoning you'll know when to stop. Pour the melted butter on first so you don't wash off the soup mix but go easy enough on the butter that the onions have a chance to get crispy. I served w/ plain white rice and a salad. 4 breasts only took 23 minutes to bake by the way. Read More

Quick and easy recipe. I read the other reviewers comments and only used half of the onion soup mix cutting out the additional salt altogether. I also served it with plain couscous which toned down the saltiness of the chicken. All in all it came out tasty. Read More

We really enjoyed this dinner. The only change I made was to not add the additional salt as the onion soup mix already has plenty of salt. It is a very quick dinner to put together. Lay the chicken in pan pour over butter and soup mix and pop in the oven. While the chicken was baking I made white sticky rice to go with the chicken and "Skillet Cabbage" from this site. Dinner was good and I will make this recipe again. Thanks Kim in Oklahoma for sharing your chicken recipe. Read More

I made this as the recipe calls only I added about a cup of sliced mushrooms to it. Chicken was most and flavorful but too salty (I did not add any salt). The gravy it made was nice with mashed potatoes. It was OK not bad for so little work. Read More

Another variation of this is to cut out 1/2 cup of water and to add 1/2 cup of sherry. It really adds flavor and the chicken is still really tender. Read More
