Oven Fried Chicken with Sweet Onion Bake

this is what we had for dinner last night. both were good and easy to make. here's the recipes...

...oven fried chicken my own creation

1 whole chicken, cut into pieces
1/2 cup flour
2 envelopes Kraft Good Seasons Salad Dressing
1/2 stick butter, melted
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 400F.

Put melted butter and oil in a large baking dish. Place flour and italian dressing packet in a large ziptop bag. Add one piece of chicken to bag and shake to coat. Dip chicken skin side down in the butter oil mixture and place skin side up in the baking pan. Repeat with all the chicken pieces.

Bake for about 1 hour, basting every so often with the grease in the bottom of the pan.

...sweet onion bake slightly adapted from the april 2006 issue of Southern Living

6 tablespoons butter, divided
3 medium sweet onions, chopped
8 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
3/4 cup Ritz crakers, finely crushed
1 cup Half-And-Half
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Melt 4 tablespoons butter, in a large skillet over medium heat; add onions, and saute 20 minutes or until golden brown. Place half the cooked onions in a lightly greased 9-inch square pan. Sprinkle with half the cheese and 1/4 cup of the cracker crumbs. Top with remaining onions and cheese.

Whisk together eggs, half-and-half, salt and pepper; pour over onion mixture.

Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat; add remaining cracker crumbs and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned. Sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the mixture in the dish.

Bake at 350F for 20 minutes.

Hi Somer. This looks like a good recipe for our small group on Thursday. Do you have the recipes in your recipe manager to email to me, or should I copy them from your blog? I'm so excited - I've been trying to figure out what to fix.

Well, I served the chicken and onion bake for small group tonight and they were both delicious. I fixed two chickens but I'll need to make a double batch of the sweet onion bake next time.
