Chicken Oreganata

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Queen Dragon Mom

Adopted! Original poster comments: This chicken recipe has a Greek flavor to it without being overly spicy. It would also work with chicken breasts or other parts. My comments: I am reworking this recipe to be more in line with what I would expect from an oreganata. I will continue to tweak it until I really like everything about it. Still needs some work, IMO.

My mouth was all greased up with the olive oil after I ate this and the oregano left a lingering after-taste. Plus, with no cover on the pan, the oil splattered everywhere making my oven a mess!
