Chicken Oreganata Recipes

chickenoregnata

Marinating chicken in this manner creates a very tender, delicious and light chicken with golden brown exterior and moist interior. You can mix together the marinade ingredients in a plastic bag and place the chicken pieces inside and simply refrigerate it hours before you want to prepare dinner. I use chicken thighs in this recipe although you could also use chicken breasts, legs, or even a whole chicken cut into pieces.

I used the grill in my version of this popular dish but you could also bake the chicken in a preheated oven at 365 degrees F. for 30 to 40 minutes. I left the bone in but if you wanted to use boneless thighs, you will need to reduce your cooking time.

Buon Appetito!
