8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 2 to 3 lb.)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
grated peel of one lemon (2 or 3 tsp.)
2 large cloves garlic, peeled and minced
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano or 2 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. salt or to taste
1/2 tsp. pepper

Rinse chicken breasts with water and pat dry with paper towels.
Place breasts in a large plastic bag.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, lemon peel, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper; pour marinade over the chicken in the bag.
Seal the bag. Refrigerate 2 to 6 hours, turning the bag occasionally to coat the chicken breasts.
Bake on a foil lined cookie sheet for 20 minutes or until no longer pink.
Or you can fry in frying pan. (Use olive oil so your chicken does not stick!)
