  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • ½ lemon, juiced

  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 7 chicken thighs


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. Whisk oil and lemon juice together.

  2. Mix oregano with salt and pepper to taste. Rub well over all chicken pieces. Place into the prepared baking dish and drizzle with 1/2 of the oil-lemon mixture.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Turn chicken pieces and drizzle with remaining oil-lemon mixture. Bake until chicken is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 15 to 20 more minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
