I took the Onion Challenge

I was recently asked to take the Onion Challenge! To begin my challenge I was sent a bottle of Onion Crunch, French's Onions and Fresh Gourmet Onions. Up next is the fun part of deciding what I was going to make! 

We don't do a normal Thanksgiving at my house because I don't want to do all of the cooking for just myself and my daughter (my gram can't eat because she's on a feeding tube.) so we have ways to have it all without going through all the work. 

I took Grilled Chicken Strips, Cream of Mushroom Soup and Green Beans and Stuffing and turned it into a casserole mix! 

First preheat your oven to 400 degrees. 

I personally like the Tyson ready strips. Start off by heating them up a little in the microwave according to the packaging and then add to the bottom of your baking pan (I use a Pyrex large glass pan). Add the frozen green beans on top of your chicken. 

The Cream of Mushroom Soup you can mix with some sour cream if you'd like a creamy mixture, but as we don't eat that, I tend to add about 1/3 water to the can and pour it over the green beans and chicken. 

Grab a bowl and mix the Stove Top in with some HOT water (about 1 2/3 cups) so that all stuffing pieces are covered. Then pour stuffing over your mixture. Pop it in the over for about 30 minutes! And you're all done! 

Now for the taste test of the challenge! 

I topped off our chicken bake with each of the onion toppings and sampled them! 

The Fresh Gourmet tasted like onion rings to me. While I like those I would enjoy them much better on their own and not on top of something. French's are always good but it wasn't a powerful onion taste once it was added onto the casserole. And the Onion Crunch was perfect! The flavor is strong enough to not be taken over and you can tell that it's there. And with the crunch of the stuffing it doesn't stand out all by itself (which was fantastic because I was able to sneak in some on my daughter's plate and she never even knew it!) 

If you are looking for a new topping for your green bean casserole or maybe you are looking for something new to do with your leftovers the recipe above can also be used with turkey instead of the chicken! And you can still use the Onion Crunch on top of your salads, on sandwiches even as a quick snack! They also have Ketchup Crunch, Pickle Crunch and Mustard Crunch coming soon! 

You can find Onion Crunch on Facebook and take your own Onion Crunch Challenge too!
