Those of you who follow my blog with a regular basis know that I love  For those of you not familiar with that site, there are recipes rated by members.  I typically pick 4 and 5 star recipes that almost always guarantee success.  I often will read the changes others have made and then decide if I will follow the recipe exactly or will add or take away or substitute ingredients.

Here is a recipe I have followed exactly on ingredients, but cooked at a different temperature and length of time because I was baking another dish at the same time (Ratatouille – posting that next).

Oregano Chicken (link)-source adapted cooking time and temperature

Serves 6


  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 6 skinless boneless chicken breast halves


Preheat oven to 350F. (Originally 375 for 30 minutes)

Make a sauce, combining the melted butter, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, oregano and garlic powder.  Stir.

Arrange the chicken breast halves in a casserole (mine were quite large and took even longer to cook through than usual).  Pour the sauce over the chicken.  Place in oven.  Every 15 minutes open the oven door to ladle the sauce over the chicken from time to time.  Cook 45 minutes and test if no longer pink.  Cook longer if needed. Mine took almost an hour.  The sauce is tasty.  I served it with pasta and Ratatouille.

I started this blog to share my favorite recipes with friends and family and have enjoyed seeing it grow beyond those boundaries.
