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
