You could notch out the side panels to accept the cabinet part of the French cleat and leave room on the back side to accept the wall side cleat if you want the back of the cabinet flush on the wall. Screw and glue the cabinet side of the cleat to the side panels. This will give you added hanging strength without relying on the back panel only. Make sure you catch studs with beefy screws (NOT sheetrock screws).
