Pair this recipe for Greek-style roasted chicken breasts with salad, potatoes, or vegetables, and savor the Mediterranean flavor!
This is adapted from a recipe that was found in The Salem News.
¼ cup olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons kosher or coarse salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 boneless chicken breasts (skin included, 6 to 8 ounces each)
Optional lemon wedges for serving
- Combine the garlic, olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and oregano in a large bowl, durable zipper-top bag, or other preferred container. Make sure the ingredients are well-mixed.
- Add in the chicken breasts, making sure they are completely immersed.
- Seal or cover the chicken breasts and allow them to marinate in the refrigerator for at the least 12 hours, and at the most 2 days.
- After that time has successfully elapsed, preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
- Line a baking sheet (it must have rims) with aluminum foil.
- Spray the aluminum foil with nonstick cooking spray.
- Remove the chicken from its marinade and place it on the baking sheet, skin side up.
- Put the chicken in the oven and allow it to roast for 25 minutes, or until it’s noticeably cooked completely.
- The chicken can now be served hot, warm, or cold, with the optional lemon wedges making an excellent garnish for added zest.
