Oregano and Lemon Chicken

1 review, 4 star(s). 100% would make again

Ready in 45 minutes

Lemony chicken in a sauce of tomatoes with fresh oregano.


4 fillets chicken thigh; boneless, skinless
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 large tomatoes
2 sprigs fresh oregano
fresh ground black pepper; to taste

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



Chop the tomatoes.

Remove the oregano leaves from their stems and add them and the pepper to the tomato.

Pour the lemon juice over the chicken pieces and mix till thoroughly coated.

Heat the oil in a frypan and brown the chicken pieces on all sides.

Add the tomato mix, stir and put a lid on.

Simmer gently till the chicken is cooked through (about 10 minutes depending on their thickness)


If serving with pasta you can use a can of chopped tomatoes instead of the fresh ones to give more sauce for the pasta. I would also double the oregano and pepper too.

Fresh oregano is much better if you can get it.
