Crisp, juicy chicken with succulent caramelized onions. Baked chicken leg quarters cook in one pan with minimal fuss. Perfect chicken every time.
  • 4 chicken leg quarters
  • 1 large onion (Or two smaller onions), sliced

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. layer onions in the bottom of a heat-proof skillet, casserole dish or baking dish. Season with salt and pepper. Add the bay leaf.
  2. Rinse leg quarters and pat dry.Season liberally with salt and pepper. Lay the chicken over the onions, arranging pieces so that they are in a single layer. Bake at 350 degrees until juices run clear or until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees. (About 1 1/2 hours in my case)
