Preheat oven to 375*. Place flour in a shallow dish or pie plate. Sprinkle chicken with salt, coat with flour. Heat 2 tbsp oil in large skillet over med-high heat until hot. Add chicken; cook, turning once, until golden (2-4 min per side). Remove chicken from skillet and place in a 9x13 baking dish.

Heat remaning oil in same skillet over med heat until hot. Add garlic & onion, cook until garlic is fragrant and onion is tender (approx 1-2 minutes).
