    justcallmetoni's Note:

    I love the combination of lemon, garlic and oregano common in so many Greek recipes. Naturally, I had to save this one found on the Cooking Light website. Have not tried it yet but will do so soon.

      This was yummy!! I cooked it tonight for my family. There are 7 of us so it is hard to find things that everyone likes. This was a hit. I used regular oregano and let it marinade about 2 hours. My oldest daughter ate it but thought the lemon taste was a bit to strong but she is my pickiest eater. Everyone else thought it was perfect. Will be making again. Thanks for the recipe.

      I followed the recipe exactly as written, just used slightly less lemon juice and marinated a little under 3 hours... it came out to be very dry. Maybe I won't cook for the full 45 minutes next time? Not sure. Like the concept though. Think I will play around with this recipe a bit.

      Great flavor. I use B/S chicken breasts, and only about 1/4 c. lemon juice. I never marinate overnight as the lemon tends to turn the chicken a bit mushy. I also like to use this recipe for OAMC, but I don't add the lemon juice until the chicken is thawing to prevent mushiness. Thanks for sharing. Diane
