This recipes needs at least 1 teaspoon of oregano finely crumbled between your fingers and you do not need the wine I use about 3 lemons and 4-5 cloves garlic not the whole bulb it is not needed also use about 1 teaspoon salt not 1/2 teaspoon I was raised Greek in Chicago's Greek town and watched Dad make this on Sundays along with roasted quartered potatoes on the side no one could make Greek dishes like my Dad he roasted the chicken & potatoes nice and slow first covered then uncovered and basted with the juices Miss my Dad

this sounds like the greek chicken i ate years ago in a greek resturant in downtown birmingham. it is funny to look back on things like favorite places and i read this recipe and thought back to this resturant because bob hope use to come in when he was in town. actually the greek chicken was cooks in some of the marinate. i alway hold out about 1/2 cup to pour over chicken while it bakes.

Sounds fantabulous! Can chicken broth be substituted for the white wine?

Yes Chicken broth can replace white wine or if you want u can use unsweetned white grape juice or the amount of 1/6 cup water and 1/6 cup of white vinegar...Hope that I was of any help.

How long would it bake if just boneless chicken breasts were used?

I agree nutritional values would be so helpful for diabetic and weight watchers.

Only used 2 lemons and the chicken had a strong lemon teste. Next time I will use one lemon and pour the marinade off. I may sear the chicken first. My chicken did not have a golden color.

Marinades are usually poured off & disposed of unless you are going to baste with it during the cooking.

Just made this tonight! Amazing...succulent, fall off the bone with a rich flavor. smells tempting as it cooks. a new favorite! Thanks Mr. Food. You never let me down.

Tried to check the video but couldn't get it up so I don't know whether to drain marinade or bake both together sigh i'll try drain that is logical lotsa luck to me

I would suggest drain.

Lemony garlicky deliciousness!

I am anxious to try this however; by your directions above, I won't turn my oven on until after the marination process@ Total waste of electricity to me.

I wish you would include the nutrition count with your recipes. I am diabetic and always looking for new recipes. I will try this recipe, but will substitute low sodium chicken broth for the wine. Mary Lou

I would love for the nutrition count to be included also! Like you, I am diabetic, I have HBP, etc. I submitted my question about substituting ch. broth for wine, too. I really believe we could. I've never cooked with wine.
