How to make it

  • Line bottom and sides of 9 X 13 baking dish with aluminum foil.
  • Lay chicken pieces in pan. Sprinkle minced garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Using hands, toss chicken pieces with spices and oil, turning to coat completely. Return chicken pieces to "skin side up" for baking. Cover with cubes of butter. Squeeze lemon pieces to extract juice over chicken. Toss squeezed lemon pieces into pan. Pour water into bottom of pan.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 75-90 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. (Time will vary depending on cut of chicken used).
  • I came up with this recipe when I found chicken thighs on sale for 39 cents a pound, and needed to either freeze them or cook them. This recipe could also work well for lamb, come to think of it.

    I usually cook with boneless, skinless chicken so hope this will work with that because the recipe sounds really delicious! I love the flavors of oregano and lemon.
