Wow! Absolutely delicious and SO EASY... I did all the prep the night before, marinated in the fridge, and popped it in the oven when I got home from work the next day! I happened to be out of oregano, so I used basil and a little thyme. I also dislike capers, so I didn't use them. Everything else I followed to a t (but halved the recipe). It looked impressive and tasted even better - I got rave reviews. Thanks!
