Deep South Eats: Island Chicken

This is one of those recipes that I had to look back and see if I had already published previously. It is a staple dish in our house. As many of my recipes do, I found this over at Annie's Eats and was drawn to it's simplicity. It is truly a fix and forget about it meal. Throw it together in the morning, let marinate all day, and then throw it in the oven when you get ready to cook. Simple, simple, simple. It has an amazing flavor and goes well with almost any side dish.

  • 1/2 cup of vegetable oil
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 2-4 chicken breasts
  • Combine all ingredients except chicken in a large bowl or ziploc bag. Whisk or shake until well mixed.
  • Add the chicken breasts to the bowl or bag and make sure they are covered by marinade.
  • If using a bowl cover tightly with plastic wrap and if using a bag press out all additional air and seal.
  • Place in refrigerator to marinate up to 10 hours.
  • When ready to cook, preheat oven to 350.
  • Place chicken breasts in baking dish and pour excess marinade over them (or be lazy and just dump the whole bag contents into the dish and spread the chicken out with a fork).
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  • Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Recipe adapted from Annie's Eats with only change being the extra soy sauce (I am a lover of soy sauce).
