Dredge chicken in the flour seasoned with salt and pepper. In a fry pan melt the butter until bubbly. Shake to remove excess flour from the chicken, brown the chicken breasts quickly on both sides. While chicken is browning layer the onion slices in the bottom of a 13x9x2 baking pan, add the 1/2 cup water. Place the chicken atop the onion slices. Pour the maple syup over the chicken. In a pinch bowl combine the savory, thyme and sage, mix together. Sprinkle the spices over the chicken. Bake, uncovered at 350' for 50-60 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, basting chicken occasionally with the pan juices.
