Dijon Onion Chicken and Gravy

Dijon Onion Chicken and Gravy - Copy (2)

This chicken and gravy is so good. We love the taste of the onions in the gravy and the mustard on the chicken.  Makes a great dish to serve to family or guests.

1 (6 ounce) can Crispy Fried Onions
2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 egg
4 or 5 chicken thighs (These are bone-in thighs with the skin on. Could use chicken pieces of your choice and boneless)
Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish.  Pour onions into a large plastic bag and add the flour to the onion.  Mash the bag until onions are mostly crumbs and well mixed with the flour.  In a bowl whisk the mustard and egg together.  Dip chicken pieces into egg mixture and then into crumbs.  Place in baking dish and bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 30 – 45 minutes until chicken is done and crispy.
Pour drippings from baking dish into a frying pan.  Add about 3 tablespoons of  flour and mix well with burner on high.  Add 1 1/2 cups milk, salt and pepper to taste and bring to a rapid boil. Cook until thickens. Pour over chicken pieces and serve.  Enjoy!

And it smells soooo Good I seasoned my chicken with salt pepper and Sazón seasoning ( you can find it in the ethnic food isle in local grocery store ) and instead of regular Dijon mustard I use stone ground Dijon mustard( that’s all I had in fridge) and a couple of teaspoons of horseradish i’m making scalloped potatoes on the side and green beans and potatoes to go with it I can’t wait to try I’ll keep you updated
