Thread: Sub for instant minced onion?

    Sub for instant minced onion?

    I'm planning on making CLs Oven Fried Chicken Fingers tonight. I don't have instant minced onion, and apparently I don't have onion powder either [which I thought I would sub]. Is there anything else I could sub in for the coating mix? Or just leave it out? [I don't have honey mustard dressing for the dipping sauce either so it won't exactly be an authentic try at the dish anyway......]

    Oven "Fried" Chicken Tenders with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce
    CL July 1999

    1/4 cup honey
    1/4 cup spicy brown mustard

    1 1/2 pounds chicken breast tenders (about 16 pieces)
    1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
    1/2 cup coarsely crushed cornflakes
    1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
    1 tablespoon instant minced onion
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil

    To prepare sauce, combine honey and mustard in a small bowl; cover and chill.
    Preheat oven to 400.
    To prepare chicken, combine chicken and buttermilk in a shallow dish; cover and chill 15 minutes. Drain chicken, discarding liquid.
    Combine cornflakes and next 5 ingredients (cornflakes through pepper) in a large zip-top plastic bag; add 4 chicken pieces to bag. Seal and shake to coat. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken. Spread oil evenly in a jelly-roll pan, and arrange chicken in a single layer in pan. Bake at 400 for 4 minutes on each side or until done. Serve with sauce.

    Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 2 chicken tenders and 1 tablespoon sauce)

    How about onion powder? Although I wouldn't use a TB!
    Everyone needs to believe in something. I believe I'll have another beer. . .

    I would suggest subbing a little bit of garlic powder or just leaving it out altogether. My husband can't eat onions, so I leave them out of things all the time. He can eat garlic, so I often use that as a substitute.

    I think you could get away with leaving it out. Garlic powder is also a good suggestion.
