    Make this all the time using boneless, skinless chicken breasts (small kids, so bone-in is a hassle at meal time). Always turns out moist, whether grilled (summer) or in the oven (winter). Foolproof. It's my go-to when we have summer visitors and it always gets rave reviews.

      I, too, used boneless and skinless chicken breasts. They were also kosher, in deference to my BF, who follows Jewish dietary guidelines. He and I were both very happy with the results. My only tweak to this recipe will be to make the grill fire a little hotter.

    My husband is the pickiest of the picky. He doens't even really like chicken on the bone. But he loved this. . Nex ttime I may try it with a boneless chicken breast.. not sure if that would work.

    I use a variation of this marinade on boneless, skinless breasts as well as bone-in skinless breasts and it is a family favorite. I add several crushed segments of fresh garlic. The garlic, lemon, oregano combination is so delicious!

    This is one of our go-to grilled chicken recipes. Love the fact that there is no sugar in the marinade.

    Very good recipe. So easy. Give yourself plenty of time for grilling though, they take a long time on the grill. Don't forget to do the lemons they are delicious!

    Just for practical purposes I roasted this. Simply because it's set it and leave it. Being single 4 chicken halves would go uneaten I used two bone in skin on chicken breasts.(400 for 25-35min chk internal temp 175deg.) Reduced the amount of oregano in the marinade and used one lemon but have used two before. Tasted great. I find chicken has a tendency to taste like chicken no matter what yo do with it. This was a nice deviation.

    My family is not fond of oregano so I use basil and its fantastic.

    If you dont favorite oregano as an ingredient, dont double up the oregano when doubling the recipe, it comes out too strong.
