Serves:

Ingredients

  • 7 chicken breasts, boneless

For Marinade:

  • 1 cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp dried marjoram
  • salt and pepper, to taste

For Salad:

  • 2 garlic cloves

Instructions

  1. Combine all the marinade ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Place the chicken in a large baking dish and pour the marinade over the chicken.

  5. Place the chicken on a platter to cool down then slice into thin strips. Set aside.
