Baked Greek Chicken
1 1/2 teaspoon oregano
1 1/2 teaspoon marjoram
2 teaspoons parsley
1 teaspoon mint
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoons minced onion
salt and pepper to taste (start with 1/2 teaspoon of each but taste and adjust upwards as needed)
1/3 cup olive oil
juice of 2 medium lemons
6 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Mix all the ingredients except for the chicken in a bowl and allow it to sit for about 30 minutes so the flavors can become well acquainted. About 10 minutes before the "getting to know you" time is up preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the chicken pieces in a 9x13 pan. Stir the olive oil mixture well then spoon all that deliciousness equally over the chicken pieces. Put them in the oven, uncovered and leave it alone until the breasts are cooked through. Since I always use small breasts for this it takes about 30 minutes until they are done. Only you know how large or small the ones you use are, so vary your cooking up or down time to accommodate their size.
Serve and spoons some of the goodness from the bottom of the pan over each piece. Enjoy!
Because I was in a no prep zone, I heated some canned green beans and sliced some tomatoes and called it done! There were no complaints from the peanut gallery and after a quick clean up TheHub went with me back to The Pig for more ground beef and more chicken.
Now guess what I am doing tomorrow?
