2 skinless thighs (or chicken breasts)

1 small lemon (juice and zest)

3 teaspoons oregano

½ minced garlic clove (optional)

little olive oil

pinch of salt

ground pepper


Preheat oven to 430°F. Remove excess fat.

In a small bowl combine lemon zest and juice, add oregano, garlic, pinch of salt and ground pepper. Stir until mixed. Add this mixture to an airtight bag with the thighs and marinate refrigerated for about 30 minutes.

Spray a little olive oil to a baking dish and place the thighs with all the juice from the bag with the bone up if you used thighs. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Turn thighs and baste with juices.

Reduce the temperature to 390°F, remove the aluminum foil and cook for about 30 minutes, basting the juices every 10 minutes. Remove, let rest a few minutes and serve.

(If you want you can make the breasts, drained previously, on the grill or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, until they are well cooked, about 5 minutes per side.)
