Chicken Oreganato

This Chicken Oreganato recipe took us by surprise, it is delicious!



We were fooled. We thought spring had finally come this week. It has been beautiful outside! That is until today. It’s all cloudy and windy. We are expecting rain again. Which I guess is better than snow, but still!!! Oh well.


We were thinking that this chicken oreganato would be so bland, but all of the reviews said it was so delicious so we decided to give it a try. So good! We really liked it. We rubbed over and under the skin so I am sure that helped, but seriously so good!


For anyone worn out from the week this is the perfect dinner. Quick, easy and delicious.
We served our chicken along with brown wild rice and salad.
