lemon-roasted chicken

Lemon-Roasted Chicken
Serves 8-9

8-9 boneless chicken breast halves
6 cloves garlic, smashed

4 Tblsp olive oil
2 teaspoon dried oregano (or Italian Seasoning)
1 lemon thinly sliced (8-9 slices)
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a large bowl or bag toss together chicken, garlic, and olive oil. Spread chicken breasts on a large parchment lined baking sheet. Season with oregano, salt and coarse ground pepper. Put one lemon slice on each breast. Roast chicken, until cooked through, 25 to 30 minutes.

I love this recipe as it makes delicious and moist chicken. I usually serve a few pieces for dinner and then freeze the rest to use in other recipes or on a Caesar Salad.
