""I got this recipe back in 1989 out of a Betty Crocker cookbook called "Make it Light" It's a quick and easy dish to prepare (using boneless chicken) and has a nice kick to it. I have made it even lighter and quicker by using skinless chicken breast with out bones. Cooks up in half the time. This is a great dish to make after a hard day at work.""

Step 1

Cut chicken into pieces: cut each breast half into halves. (I just use the boneless chicken breast). Mix oil, marjoram, red pepper, margarine and salt; brush chicken on both sides with margarine mixture.

Step 2

Place chicken, skin sides down, on rack in broiler pan. Set oven control to broil. Broil chicken with tops 7 to 9 inches from heat 30 minutes; (15 mins for boneless) turn. Broil until brown and thickest pieces are done 20 to 30 minutes longer. (I will sometimes throw them on the BBQ.).

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Great chicken -- I used the boneless option and dinner was done in under 20 minutes. Made as directed but next time I will probably use less red pepper flakes. Thanks for sharing!

This quick and easy chicken recipe tastes fantastic!! It will be made often here. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts that I cut into slices and they were done in under 10 minutes. Thx for sharing this here.
