Sooooo delicious, I love that zippy tang from the lemon. I kept exactly to the ingredients with one adjustment, I doubled the oregano. I pounded the chicken first and I cooked it in the oven for about forty mins, (I don't have a slow cooker). Had it with broccoli and basmati rice. Thanks, this will be a regular!!
Outstanding! I made this for dinner tonight, and was rushed so I too made it in the oven rather than in the crockpot (30 mins covered at 325F, then remove cover, baste, and 10 more mins uncovered). I used 3 garlic cloves and about 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice. The flavour was excellent, tangy and garlicky, and the chicken was very tender and moist. It was quite straightforward to prepare and I will definitely make this for my family again; they loved it.
Easy preparation and wonderful flavor. I used a cut up fryer instead of only chicken breasts and it turned out great. I also cooked it in the oven, covered for 40 minutes and uncovered the last 10-15 minutes. Used more garlic than called for because the garlic cloves were small and we just like garlic. I served it with roasted potatoes and steamed asparagus. A delicious meal we will have again.
