Chicken Oregano

Chicken Oregano: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

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.

Chicken Oregano


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Cut chicken breasts in half horizontally, making 4 chicken breasts. Place chicken in a shallow baking dish.
  2. Combine the melted butter, oregano and garlic powder. Pour over chicken and refrigerate for 4 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 325ยบ F.
  4. 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.
