Practice this, the weight towards target and not breaking wrists/elbows on back swing are the most important part. Don't worry about taking a divot, etc., as you just want to make good ball contact. These two things, weight and wrists/elbows helped me tremendously in my chipping when I got back into the game. I now consistently hit the greens in one shot using this method, weight and wrists/elbows. Very easy to remember and not complicated.
You may want to try this with your fairway iron shots. Start with the chipping and then move on from there. I think you may be surprised. I found this tip on the internet, youtube, and it works. Main thing is weight towards target on the chips. It lets you get under the ball, it is very rare that I will skull a ball or get a worm burner.
I guess it sounds like stack and tilt, but I have never played around with that. The above works for me and was incredibly easy to master.

Whenever I get a little loose with my shots, I always go back to my set up routine and the fundamental basics. Make sure your grip, stance, ball position and posture are correct EVERY time. Without a consistent routine to start from, you cannot hope to be consistent from a swing standpoint - if the set up is too variable, the resulting swings will be equally variable too. Basically, to get the best possible chance of returning the clubhead back to it's correct impact position, you need to maximise the possibility by keeping the set up consistent. Get these down cold before working on any other area.
