Recipe by saracrocker

This recipe came from my sister in law--the best baked chicken I have ever eaten! You can use a whole chicken or a cut up chicken.

I mixed everything together and marinated the chicken also for 30 minutes. Very juicy and tasty. I used fresh basil from a friend and lemon juice from my trees and the rest were dry herbs. I only made 1 chicken breast so cooked it for about 25 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe!
