Baked Chicken With Sweet Onions

This baked chicken is not only easy to prepare and cook; it’s also easy on the budget. You can use chicken thighs or whole legs in the dish, but it is excellent with split chicken breasts as well. The simple seasonings don’t hide the great flavor of the chicken, and the sweet onions are complementary.

Ingredients

  • 2 frying chickens, quartered, bone-in
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 medium sweet onions, sliced

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 350 F. Grease a large, shallow baking pan or roasting pan.

  2. In a bowl, food storage bag, or pie plate, combine the flour, salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder.

  3. Toss chicken pieces with the seasoned flour until thoroughly coated.

  4. Place a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat; add the olive oil. Working in batches, add chicken pieces to the hot oil. Cook for about 5 minutes total, turning to brown the chicken pieces on all sides.

  5. Arrange the browned chicken pieces in the prepared baking pan.

  6. Add the onions to the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, just until softened and coated with oil.

  7. Arrange the sweet onion slices around the chicken.

  8. Bake the chicken for about 45 minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.*
