Crunchy "Fried" Chicken

Okay, clearly I'm not eating fried chicken!  Although today our dining center on campus had it and the whole building smelled like fried chicken.  So this is what we came up with tonight - baked/crunchy chicken.  It hit the spot.  Very moist, good flavor and went nicely with the roasted asparagus and tomato recipe we like to make and uncle ben's brown chicken flavored rice (90 second kind).  Big thanks to my sweetie for making dinner tonight - this girl was TIRED!
The final product for dinner - there were no leftovers tonight : )
Talk about easy on the ingredients for the chicken.
Chicken out of the oven before we served it.
1 egg
1.5 tablespoons of flour
1.5 cups of French's Fried Onions
2 - 5 or 6oz, boneless skinless chicken breasts (makes 2 servings)

Crush Fried onions with flour in plastic bag.  Dip chicken into egg; then coat in onion crumbs on both sides.  Bake for 20-25 minutes in oven until cooked through.  (You can sub out the egg and use 1/4 cup of mustard if you want a little stronger flavor).

Very good - this will become one of those things in our regular rotation.
