Let me start this recipe off by saying you CANNOT mess this one up!! You can add a little more or a little less of one of these ingredients (depending on your flavor preferences) and it will still be delicious! These four fresh ingredients create a simple but delicious flavor together! Ok...now let's get going:
Combine the lemon juice, garlic, oregano and evoo into a large ziplock bag.
Optional: I like to quickly tenderize the meat between two pieces of cling wrap. It helps the chicken cook more evenly and it helps the marinate soak into the chicken too.
Add the chicken to the marinade and seal while pushing out any excess air.
Gently (without reopening the bag) massage the marinate into all sides of the chicken.
Marinate for at least 3 hours or up to overnight in the refrigerator. TIP: I usually make this the same morning and allow it to sit 8 hours or so and it's perfect every time!
Remove the chicken from the marinade and cook however you prefer. We always grill ours.
Enjoy the chicken as is, over a salad, with a side of rice + veggies or over a pasta salad - options are endless. And this chicken is delicious hot or cold.
NOTE: you can easily increase this recipe to 2+ packages of chicken which I often do. Cook once and get multiple dinner + lunch meals out of it.
