Athenian Chicken

This recipe is one of my family's favorites. It is a very clean taste and very easy to prepare. It works well in the oven, or (if the weather is hot) on the grill. These days, you can get whole packages of any cut of chicken -- all drumsticks, all thighs, chicken quarters -- at the grocery store. Watch for them to go on sale, and prepare what your family likes best!


5-7 chicken pieces, bone-in, with skin
Juice of one lemon
1 1/2 tbs. dried oregano
1 tbs. fresh oregano, chopped
1 tsp. salt
Pepper to taste

In a gallon-sized ziploc bag, combine lemon juice, dried and fresh oregano, salt and pepper. Add chicken pieces. Seal bag, move chicken around to ensure marinade has good contact with the meat. Marinate on counter-top for one hour or in refrigerator for 3-6 hours. 30 minutes before cooking, remove from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature. Place marinated chicken on a cookie sheet lined with non-stick foil. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
