Greek Chicken Marinade

1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
Juice of 2 lemons
Zest of 1 lemon
Chicken Thighs or Chicken breasts

In a glass dish, mix the olive oil, garlic, rosemary, thyme, oregano, lemon juice and zest. Pour into a plastic ziploc bag. Place the chicken pieces in the mixture and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours up to 24 hours. Bake chicken at 350° for 30-45 minutes or until cooked through. I couldn't resist beautiful fresh strawberries I got on sale at the market and a simple grape and strawberry salad was a perfect compliment to this dish. Greek chicken also goes well with a feta and tomato salad with kalamata olives, antipasto, or on a bed of wild rice. Enjoy!!
