In a large bowl stir together the paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary, parsley, and cayenne. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Place the chicken in the prepared skillet, skin side up.

3

Separate the thighs with the quartered onion and then sprinkle the whole garlic cloves throughout the skillet, preferably so that they are touching the bottom.

4
Done

Drizzle the oil over the chicken and then the lemon juice.

5
Done

Bake in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes until cooked through and the juices run clear. Baste the breasts with juice from the bottom of the skillet.

6
Done

Turn the oven to broil and broil for 5 to 10 minutes, watching closely, until the skin has crisped up to your liking.

7
Done

Remove from the oven, break apart the onion and enjoy the chicken with the onions and caramelized garlic cloves alongside your favorite vegetable.
