This chicken has great flavor and is super easy to make. Plus it marinates and cooks all in one dish.
It may seem weird to melt butter for a marinade only to put it in the fridge and have it harden. It certainly did to me and I even thought about not marinading it and just cooking it in the butter sauce. But I decided to follow the directions and see how it tasted. Since it tasted good, I guess I will stick with marinating the chicken.
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Cut chicken breasts in half horizontally, making 4 chicken breasts. Place chicken in a shallow baking dish.
Combine the melted butter, oregano and garlic powder. Pour over chicken and refrigerate for 4 hours.
Preheat oven to 325º F.
Remove chicken from refrigerator and place in oven. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until completely cooked.
Notes: This dish can easily be doubled to feed a larger crowd.
