Baked Oniony Chicken

An easy, family-friendly chicken dish that features the sweetness of baked onions. Try it; this dish will become an all-time favorite. My friend Malki told me all about her "easiest ever" family favorite: onion soup mix chicken. I just had to try it. She literally uses just onion soup mix, but I've added a few other steps and adapted it to indulge my baked onion cravings.


  • Prep Time : 12 min
  • Cook Time : 1 hour
  • Ready Time : 1 hour, 12 min


4 Servings


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons onion soup mix, divided
  • 3 large onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 chicken, about 3 1/2 pounds, cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9×13-inch pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix olive oil and 1 tablespoon onion soup mix.
  3. Add onions and stir in olive oil and onion soup mixture.
  4. Place about a quarter of the onions on the bottom of prepared pan.
  5. Rinse chicken pieces, pat dry and place on top of onions in pan.
  6. Season chicken with remaining 2 tablespoons of onion soup mix, paprika and pepper.
  7. Scatter remaining onions and olive oil mixture on and around chicken, making sure to drizzle some of the remaining oil over chicken skin.
  8. Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 1 hour or until chicken is browned.

If you have enough time, slice an additional onion and stuff a few slivers under the skin of each piece of chicken.

  1. i made this for shabbas and came out great. also instead of spraying the pan with non stick cooking spray, i used water.

  2. I make this often and all my guests love it! It’s super easy and incredibly tasty. It’s my go to recipe when I need to come up with a nice meal in a pinch.

    My 2 year old is a self-decided vegetarian and it drives me nuts. We went to a friend for Pesach lunch and she made this chicken- my son couldn’t get enough!!! I look forward to making this as often as he will eat it and it sounds sooo easy.

    • Thanks so much for commenting, I love hearing things like this about anyones recipe.
