Chose the Very Best Chicken Breasts for Quality Results!

Boneless/skinless chicken breasts from Omaha Steaks are the perfect size breast for this recipe. Their chicken breasts are individually vacuumed sealed, and are 100% satisfaction guaranteed. I don’t know of many grocery stores that have that same policy or for that matter many manufacturers.

With this recipe, feel free to start from frozen or thawed. If starting from frozen you need to allow an extra 20 minutes cooking time.

Omaha Steaks Vacuum Packs all their meats.

You will have to use scissors to open the vacuum packaging that Omaha Steaks uses to seal their products.  It is a challenge to open them at times.

Marinade the Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts in a Zip-Lock

Be sure to marinade in the refrigerator.  You may need to add a small amount of cooking or olive oil to prevent butter from becoming hardened again.

Step By Step for Oh Baby...Crusted Chicken Breasts

  1. Step One: Combine the 1/3 cup melted butter with the package of Lipton Onion Soup mix. Mix together well, and if you see that it is too thick, add a small amount of water. (I added a ¼ cup of water in the video.)
  2. Step Two: Remove the Omaha Steaks chicken breasts from their individual packages, and place into a Zip-Lock Bag and pour in the butter and onion soup mixture. Allow to marinate for a least one hour. However overnight is preferable for the flavors to have time to be absorbed into the chicken. (There as probably enough of this mixture left over in the bag for another couple of pieces of chicken.) (In the video, I started with frozen chicken breasts and only allowed it to marinate for about an hour. The two breasts that we had the following day were better. You know how it is, the flavors are always better the second day.) *If you chose to marinate the breasts overnight, I recommend that you mix in a bit of olive or cooking oil to help keep the butter from becoming too hard and not adhering to the chicken pieces well.
  3. Step Three: Place crushed Italian Croutons in another Zip-Lock bag, and place one breast at a time into the bag. Make sure the bag is closed properly, and begin to applying the crushed croutons all over the breast. Make sure each breast is completely covered with the crushed Italian Croutons and place them on a cookie sheet. *Using the extra Zip-lock helps to keep your hands clean through the process. I usually just use a bowl and pat the crushed croutons onto the chicken. * If you want crispier pieces of chicken, place on a rack and place the cookie sheet under it to catch any crumbs that might fall off while cooking. (See the photo of the rack that I used when I cooked ours.)
  4. Step Four: From a cold oven, place your pan of chicken breasts and set the temperature to 350 degrees. From frozen; bake for about an hour, if starting with thawed chicken breasts, bake for about 40-45 minutes.

Final Notes on our Oh Baby...Crusted Chicken Breasts


While our Omaha Steaks order of their “Amazing Griller’s Feast” came with a couple of side dishes that we could have had with our meals, we chose to have some of the neatest products recently to hit the store shelves for singles and seniors alike.


Kraft Mac-n-Cheese individual packets, cooks in 3-1/2 minutes and Chicken flavored Rice-A-Roni in individual cups! Perfection at its finest!


The Second meal with our Oh Baby…Crusted Chicken Breasts
The only thing that we had different between our two crusted chicken breast meals was; I sliced my chicken breast into equal slices, place a small pat of butter on each slice, and heated it up in the microwave for 30 seconds.


Oh Baby…was all I could come out with. Hence the reason why they are named, Oh Baby…Crusted Chicken Breasts!

      Never thought to marinate using onion soup mix. I use the onion soup mix and melted butter and mixed with potato chunks and than bake. I'm with you using croutons for breading, I like it better than bread crumbs.
