*Very Lemony Chicken*


Using skinless chicken breasts means this tangy dish is lower in saturated fat and cholesterol.


1-1/2 lb. chicken breasts, skinned and fat removed (I buy the boneless, skinless breasts)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 cup fresh sliced lemon peel
3 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1 medium onion, sliced
1/4 teaspoon salt (I prefer to use a good herb mix instead of salt)
black pepper to taste (I like crushed black java pepper!)
1/2 teaspoon paprika

1. Place chicken in 13x9x2" glass baking dish.

2. Mix lemon juice, vinegar, lemon peel, oregano, and onions. Pour over chicken, cover and marinate in refrigerator several hours or overnight, turning occasionally.

3. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and paprika.

4. Cover and bake at 325 F for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 30 minutes more or until done.

Yield: 4 servings--Serving Size: One chicken breast with sauce
