Broiled Chicken Oregano

Joanne Hendriksen


My version of Broiled in only 10 minutes Lemony orange "Italian Chicken Breasts". This style of chicken has carried me throughout the day on many occasion. There are very few calories in this as a lunch or late snack also.

chicken breasts
garlic clove, quartered


1/3 c
lemon juice
1/3 c
olive oil
1/3 c
zesty italian dressing
"just a pinch" of salt & pepper
3 Tbsp
oregano, fresh chopped


5 Tbsp
butter, melted
1/3 c
lemon juice
3 Tbsp
oregano, fresh chopped


1Several hours before serving-or the day before, if time allows, rub the chicken pieces pieces with the garlic and place them in a deep china or earthenware bowl.
2Combine marinade ingredients and the garlic clove and pour over chicken; Cover the bowl and refrigerate the chicken.
3Turn chicken pieces occasionally.
4When ready to cook, preheat the broiler to its highest setting.
5Arrange the chicken pieces on the broiler rack and baste with a little of the melted butter mixture - (Reserve part of the basting mixture to serve over the chicken when served).
6Broil the chicken 3-4 inches from the heat for 5-8 minutes per side, basting often.
7Chicken is done when juices run clear when pierced with a sharp knife.
8Remove to serving platter, pour reserved basting mixture over the chicken breasts and serve immediately - This is also good done on a BBQ.
9MY Favorite way to enjoy this salad is to place a flour tortilla in small skillet (No Oil needed) pressing tortilla into the shape of a bowl, then bake at 375 degrees for only 5-7 minutes according to crispness. When cool layer with baby Romaine lettuce leaves placing carrots sticks, jicama, or broccoli cut in strips along sides. Place chicken cut in strips then place a dollop of Honey Barbeque sauce in the center and enjoy.
