How to Make A Delicious Crunchy Blackened Chicken Recipe
Ingredients for the Blackened Chicken Recipe:
- French fried onions
- Chili powder
- Boneless skinless chicken breasts
- Shredded cheese of your choice. I used cheddar
- Place your French fried onions in a zipper seal bag and crush them.
- You can use a rolling pin or meat mallet, your hands, or even the back of a spoon.
- Stir crushed French fried onions together with seasonings in a shallow bowl you can dip chicken in.
- Beat eggs and place in a shallow dish.
- Dip each piece of chicken first in egg on both sides
- Then dip in both sides in coating mixture.
- Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add coated chicken to heated oil.
- Cook this about 4-5 minutes on each side, trying not to turn but once or twice if need be, until no longer pink in the center.
- Once done, top with cheese and leave just long enough for cheese to melt.
Yum!!! This smells so good and tastes even better. The chicken is nice and juicy inside the crunchy coating!
