Mmmm, Mmmm Monday

I get asked all the time for recipes and several of mine have been passed around the blog-o-sphere, so I thought I would start featuring a recipe each week. I want to share Honey Onion Chicken with you!
I must give credit where credit is due.  This came from my friend Kimberly in Waco who is a FANTASTIC cook!  She had me over for dinner before we moved while Flint was out of town and it instantly became a favorite of our's and to many of those who have tried it!
I took this to my friend Jenna, after baby Brody was born and since then it has been shared LOTS!  So, you may have heard Jenna talk about it on Twitter or on her blog or you may have had it somewhere else.  But, hopefully it is new to you.  (Jenna, I borrowed your picture since I didn't have one and your plates are super cute, by the way!)
Honey Onion Chicken
1 pkg chicken tenders
1 can french fried onions
2 eggs
lemon pepper (although I am out of lemon pepper so the last couple of times I have made this I just used a seasoned pepper blend and I kind of like it better)

Crush french fried onions (I only do half at a time.  They seem to coat the chicken better that way.)  Dip chicken into egg and into onions.  Put in a greased baking dish.  Sprinkle pepper and salt over chicken to taste and then drizzle with honey.  I like lots of honey, but that depends on how sweet you want it.  Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes.  Take foil off, drizzle with more honey and bake for 20 more minutes or until chicken is done.
In the words of Rachel Ray, YUM-O!
