    1. 1
      Several 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.
    2. 2
      Combine lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, and oregano and pour over chicken.
    3. 3
      Cover the bowl and refrigerate the chicken for 1 hour, turning chicken pieces occasionally.
    4. 4
      When ready to cook, preheat the broiler to its highest setting. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade.
    5. 5
      Combine the melted butter, 1/3 cup lemon juice, and remaining oregano to make basting mixture.
    6. 6
      Arrange 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.
    7. 7
      Broil the chicken 3-4 inches from the heat for 5 to 8 minutes per side, basting often.
    8. 8
      Chicken is done when juices run clear when pierced with a sharp knife.
    9. 9
      Remove to serving platter, pour reserved basting mixture over the chicken breasts and serve immediately.
    10. 10
      This is also good done on a BBQ.

      We really enjoyed this chicken! I added the oregano to the marinade and tripled the garlic. Love garlic!

      This recipe sounded awesome; in the end, it was an edible dish but not much more. The lemon gave it a very sour flavor. We won't be making it again.

      What a nice tasting chicken dish. I halved the recipe seeing as it is only DH and myself so 4 breasts would be too much. I used margarine instead of butter. I broiled them for aprox 8-9 minutes each side and they turned out great. I think they would be good on a indoor grill too.
