I like this for a change from the typical barbeque flavors sometimes. This recipe is for the barbeque or outdoor grill. I've seen several different versions of this, and I make my own too. So, here is mine. My family loves it; I hope yours does too.

How to Make Lemon Oregano Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Whisk to combine all but the chicken in a small bowl. Salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Pour liquid into a 1 gallon zip lock bag. Put chicken in the bag and seal it. Turn the bag over and over to ensure chicken is covered with liquid. Set aside and let soak for about 30 minutes (I have left it sit in the frig. for a day; just make sure to turn it over a few times.
