Pollo Originato
Sicilian Grilled Chicken with Oregano

YIELD: Serves 6-8

INGREDIENTS:

cup olive oil

cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

3-4 cloves of garlic, peeled and very finely chopped

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped

1 teaspoon dried oregano

salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

METHOD:

1. Prepare a hot charcoal fire, or preheat a gas grill for about 10 minutes on high.

2. In a large glass measuring cup, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, parsley, oregano and salt and pepper. Place chicken breasts in a baking dish and pour the marinade evenly over the breasts. Marinate the chicken pieces for at least 30 minutes, or overnight.

3. Remove the chicken from the marinade and reserve the marinade.  Place the chicken on the grill, basting once with the marinade and cook about 5-7 minutes or until springy to the tough.  Turn the chicken, baste and cook another 5-7 minutes. Be careful not to overcook.

VARIATION:
Marinated chicken can be cut into chunks and skewered with vegetables.  Grill as described above.
