Lately I have been on a citrus kick and adding citrus to just about everything. And surprisingly this simple chicken dish packed with lemon was one of our favorite meals last week. The combination of lemon, garlic, and oregano just works and the chicken ends up moist and packed with flavor. It can be made quickly in a skillet or tossed on the grill and I highly recommend making a double batch since it is perfect for leftover salads and grain bowls. I also highly recommend topping the end product with lots of feta cheese and some sliced black olives, if that's your thing, and hopefully it is. So good.

Delicious! We pounded the chicken breasts out and marinated them a little longer (accidentally). Very tender and lots of flavor!
