"A simple oven baked dish that I modified to reduce the fat by half. Using skinless chicken would reduce the fat even more, but we prefer it with skin on for this dish. Try it with a steamed green vegetable or a vegetable salad."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Rinse and dry the chicken and trim any excess fat. Place in rimmed pan large enough that the pieces are separated. A low rim ensures even cooking.

Step 2

Combine the olive oil, butter, lemon pepper seasoning, and lemon juice. Brush both sides of the chicken pieces with seasoned oil/butter mixture.

Step 3

Sprinkle both sides generously with oregano.

Step 4

Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes. Less time will be needed for pieces than for halves of a chicken, so adjust the time accordingly.

I love the ease of making this chicken and it's so delicious! I had it with Lemon Potatoes and some sauteed kale. Delicious all the way! Thank you for sharing it with us Mary. Linda

Love this chicken! It's got a great combination of flavors and is easy on the waistline too, which is always a plus for me. I will make this often. By the way any leftovers go great in salad too!

I didn't use the butter and just added oil. Worked out well and tasted delicious. Thank you Mary!

I love this quick to the table chicken and my family loves it too. It was really enjoyed by us all with grill roasted potatoes and a fresh cuke and tomato salad.

I made this and my husband grilled it. It was delicious done that way and I know we will be having it this winter in the oven too. Great tasting chicken goes a long way in my house and we really love this!
