French Onion Soup is a classic of French cuisine for its deep savory flavor and comforting warmth. French Onion Chicken captures those flavors in a crunchy breadcrumb coating, so every bite is bursting with heartiness and satisfaction. The chicken is made extra fatty with a coating of garlic mayonnaise, which also helps keep the chicken juicy. French Onion Chicken only takes 25 minutes to make, so you can enjoy rich French cooking on a weeknight.

1 cup bread crumbs
1 (1 ounce) package dry French onion soup mix
