I bought a big bottle of dried onion at Costco on a whim a couple of months ago. No plan.
What do you DO with dried onions?
I found a use this week - in a quick marinade for chicken.
Onion Soy Chicken
1 lb chicken breast, cut into slices about 1/2" thick
3/4 cup soy sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 TB dried onion
1 cup cornstarch
Oil for frying
Stir the soy, garlic, and onion together in a large bowl. Add the chicken and mix to coat.
Let sit for 15 minutes.
While the chicken is marinating, heat about an inch of oil over medium heat.
Place cornstarch in another bowl.
When the oil is hot, remove chicken from the marinade, and lightly coat each piece in cornstarch.
(If any onion sticks to the chicken, leave it - it will crisp up and be delicious.)
Carefully place the chicken in the oil, working in batches if needed.
Cook, turning once or twice, until the chicken is brown and cooked through.
Drain on paper towel, and serve.
It's best while hot, but is still pretty tasty as leftovers.
