Yum!! I pounnded the chicken to an even thickness (which should be included in the recipe for those that follow recipes exactly). I did not add oregano or parsley, but did add very small amounts of the following to each side of the chicken: rosemary blend, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper flakes (along with the lemon juice, salt & pepper). I let it sit for about 10 minutes while I cooked wild rice and heated the olive oil in the pan for a minute. Then proceeded to cook the chicken. After I turned the chicken to cook the other side I started to steam broccoli. Everything was done at the same time and I had a nice quick hot lunch today. Excellent lemon flavor. Will serve again and try it out on the family. Read More

This one was a bit plain for my taste. But definite plus is the time it takes up to prepare (perfect for a quick lunch fix). Plus as other user suggested I think this meat would be good in a salad. Read More

This was good but I didn't find the oregano really added anything to the recipe. I did add a little chicken broth towards the end of cooking that I reduced to make a sauce. Read More

This was quite nice. I added minced garlic to the oil prior to adding the chicken and based off another review also added crushed red pepper flakes to the chicken along with the oregano. I served this with garlic and olive oil couscous. A tasty simple meal. Read More

Simple but elegant, delicious and easy. Versatile too, in that if oregano doesn't appeal to you there are endless other possibilities for seasonings. I prepared this using fresh oregano and adding fresh minced garlic and I know I'd love this with dill too. Read More

This is a fast flavorful & fabulous way to cook chicken for a quick go-to dinner. With the lemon tree in the backyard I'm always keen on recipes with fresh lemon. We like to use other herbs in place of the oregano to change it up too. Thyme is an excellent option. Slices of this delicious chicken on top of a fresh salad w/ choice of dressing is always a hit at our table for two. Thanks for sharing the recipe!:) Read More
