There are quite a few sites I frequent where the writing is entertaining, interesting, sometimes instructional and many times...the food and recipes are just so darned good. Tomatoes on the Vine is one of my those places in my favorites folder. Velva recently wrote about Oregano Lemon Chicken which she snared from Taste of Home magazine. In turn, I am shamelessly stealing it from Velva :-) and hope she doesn't mind.
It's a delicious meal and super easy to toss together. The honey I used was from Velva's brother's bees. Now that's cooking using true local ingredients.
Oregano Lemon Chicken
Recipe originally from Taste of Home (I got it from Velva)
6 bone-in chicken thighs
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons dried oregano
Place the chicken in a 13-in. x by 9-in. baking dish. Combine the lemon juice, honey, oil, garlic and oregano; Pour over chicken.
Look at this lush marinade!
Bake, uncovered at 375F. for 45 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 180F, basting occasionally with pan juices.
This was great and it didn't last us as many nights as it should have. It was just that good.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and plan a safe and festive new year.
