  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped oregano
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts


  1. Stir, olive oil, oregano, onion, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; pour into a large, resealable plastic bag; add the chicken and seal, removing as much air from the bag as possible. Massage the bag to assure the chicken is completely coated in marinade.
  2. Marinate chicken in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat. Remove chicken from the marinade, shaking to remove excess moisture. Discard marinade.
  4. Grill chicken on hot grill until the flesh is firm and no longer translucent in the center, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

We keep oregano in our herb garden, so this recipe was a no-brainer. It was simple enough for the boys to eat it without having to be persuaded to even try it. Lemon, oregano, and garlic just work well together.

I love that this recipe calls for fresh oregano. It's so worth hunting it down and getting that pure flavor coming thru every bite.
