2 - teaspoons Greek Oregano
3  - cloves garlic minced
2  - tablespoons olive oil
¼  - tablespoon kosher salt
¼ - teaspoon  fresh ground black pepper
4 -  boneless, skinless chicken  breast


Preheat oven to 400 degrees

In a 9x 13 baking dish arrange the  chicken. Grate the peel from the lemon over the chicken, cut the lemon  in half and squeeze the  juice  from half of the lemon  over the chicken, then add the Greek Oregano,  oil, garlic, salt and pepper.  Cover the dish and bake for 20 min.  then turn  and baste.
   Reduce heat to 375 degrees and bake uncovered for 30 more min. basting every 10 min.  Serve chicken with pan juice.  This  chicken is so flavorful and moist and  is excellent with pasta.
