French Fried Onion Baked Chicken

I have to warn you, this meal should come with an addictive sticker warning. It is that good! I got a frantic message from a good friend urging me to try this chicken. I was a little apprehensive after all I am watching my calories but after a little tweaking of the recipe and adding it to some vegetables, I am safe to say I didn't go over my allowed calories. Even better was the reaction I got from The Fireman. He liked it, he really liked it!! Thanks to Carousel Ride for the tip!

French Fried Onion Baked Chicken
1 package of thin chicken breasts (you can pound them thin or buy them that way)
1 cup of French Fried Onions (you know the ones you use at Thanksgiving!)
1/4 cup egg substitute (or 1 egg)
1/4 cup water

These are just smaller breasts that are not as thick. They happen to be the perfect serving size for this girl that is watching her calories. If you see them on sale, grab them! If not, just put your chicken breast between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound it thin.
Take the egg and water and mix together. Dip the chicken into it. Now you could dip in flour first and then egg but I am really trying to avoid flour and these yummy onions aren't the lowest in calories so if you can avoid the flour, it wont make too much difference.
Cover with the french fried onions. Now you could only cover one side. Still yummy, but I am going to the full onion affect!
Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked all the way through.
Serve immediately.
