Spicy (or not) Crispy Onion Chicken

Pure comfort food - to eat AND to make! My go-to meal when I'm too wiped to make anything else, and not in the mood for take-out. Best part is, the only fresh ingredient I need is chicken - everything else is in the pantry/refrigerator. Sometimes I'll coat a few tenderloins in the sauce before adding the red pepper, and cook those up for my daughters. Last night I just made it as-is, and Naya inhaled it! Usually make with white rice on the side.

3 T butter, melted
2 1/2 T Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. red pepper
4 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 c. french fried onions, crushed
1 lb chicken tenderloins

In a medium sized bowl, combine the melted butter, Worcestershire, garlic powder, black and red peppers and Dijon mustard.
Place the french fried onions in a shallow dish or a plate. Dredge the chicken breast in the butter mixture, covering well. Then dip the chicken breast into the onions, making sure it’s well-covered. Place the chicken breast on a greased baking sheet. Top with remaining sauce and onions. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and onions are crisp and browned.
