Greek Chicken Breasts

Recipe from

Southern Living


4 bone-in chicken breast halves
8 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons dried oregano
4 lemons, thinly sliced
16 to 20 kalamata olives, pitted
1 (4-ounce) container crumbled feta cheese
Garnishes: lemon slices, fresh oregano sprigs


Lift skin gently from chicken breasts without detaching it; place 2 garlic cloves under skin of each breast. Replace skin.

Rub breasts evenly with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and oregano.

Place lemon slices in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish, and arrange chicken breasts over lemon. Sprinkle olives around chicken.

Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until done. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with feta cheese. Garnish, if desired.
