Baked chicken is such a family-pleasing meal. This four-ingredient baked chicken recipe creates a caramelized onion gravy that's delish spooned over mashed potatoes or rice. You are going to be obsessed with this chicken dinner.

Start the recipe by putting onions and garlic into a baking pan. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with flour. The flour will help thicken the sauce as it bakes.

Use whatever chicken pieces your family enjoys. You could also throw in some herbs from the garden for a little freshness. Serve this easy four-ingredient baked chicken recipe with caramelized onion gravy with your favorite side dishes.
