Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Several hours before serving or the day before (if time allows), rub the chicken pieces pieces with the garlic and place them in a deep china or earthenware bowl.
  2. Combine lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, and oregano and pour over chicken.
  3. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the chicken for 1 hour, turning chicken pieces occasionally.
  4. When ready to cook, preheat the broiler to its highest setting. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade.
  5. Combine the melted butter, 1/3 cup lemon juice, and remaining oregano to make basting mixture.
  6. Arrange the chicken pieces on the broiler rack and baste with a little of the melted butter mixture. Reserve part of the basting mixture to serve over the chicken when served.
  7. Broil the chicken 3-4 inches from the heat for 5 to 8 minutes per side, basting often.
  8. Chicken is done when juices run clear when pierced with a sharp knife.
  9. Remove to serving platter, pour reserved basting mixture over the chicken breasts and serve immediately.
