      Put the chicken pieces skin side up in a single layer in a baking dish or pan. Brush or rub with all the melted butter. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika and add some herbs if you'd like (I used Penzey's Fines Herbs). Spread the onion and garlic on the top of the chicken.

      Cover tightly and bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the sherry and honey and bring to a boil in a small saucepan or heat in the microwave until the honey is liquefied. Remove chicken from oven, scrape the onions and garlic into the bottom of the pan and pour the honey mixture over the chicken. Bake uncovered for an additional 15 to 30 minutes or until chicken is done. Serve with pan juices in a gravy boat or separate dish to pour over the chicken.
