I just recently had an extra packet of French onion soup mix in my pantry and this delicious chicken recipe resurfaced in my brain.
I remembered it as a childhood favorite and one of the first ways I liked chicken when it wasn’t chicken nuggets.
So of course I called my mom and said,
“Hey, do you remember this recipe you used to make in like 1997 with french onion soup mix and chicken?”
“Oh yeah. I guess so.” she replied.
Do you have the recipe?
“I think it was just soup mix and chicken and maybe some melted butter.”
And my friends it is basically THAT EASY!
To make this Baked French Onion Soup Chicken all you need is boneless skinless chicken breasts (or chicken breast cutlets), placed in a greased baking sheet. Then pour on some melted butter and top with a generous sprinkle of French onion soup mix. Voila!
An easy, 3 ingredient dinner in no time at all! This baked chicken recipe seriously couldn’t be any easier!! If you’re looking for more easy, tasty recipes like this one be sure to grab your FREE week of my Real Food, Comfort Food Meal Plan!
My baked chicken is always dry. What’s up with that?
Overcooking chicken makes it dry and the worst, but how long you need to cook your chicken breast can vary depending on it’s thickness. I have suggested cooking times, but highly recommend using a digital meat thermometer to check your chicken’s internal temperature.
Cooked chicken’s internal temperature needs to reach 165 to be safe to eat! So about 5 minutes before it should be done, I like to pull my chicken out of the oven and check the internal temperature.
Just a little tip!
Because no one should have dry chicken.
This recipe is super moist and delicious, but if you overcook any chicken it’s gonna be dry!
What if I don’t have a package of French onion soup mix?
That’s okay! Use this homemade french onion soup mix to make your own with a few spices and pantry staples!
What should I serve with the French onion soup chicken?
I loved it paired with mushrooms and I think added sliced onions would be great too!
(The zucchini wan’t bad, it just didn’t get as crispy as I like it because of the butter and chicken juices, so I wouldn’t recommend it.)
This baked chicken is also awesome on salad, like this spring berry salad or in a wrap or as a chicken sandwich enjoyed on a bun with a slice of mozzarella cheese!
