Lemon Feta Chicken with Oregano
Mediterranean ingredients such as lemon, oregano and feta cheese turn ordinary chicken into a spectacular dinner. The cheese forms a light crust on top when broiled – you won’t even miss the skin!
This is sooo easy to make with only a few ingredients; simply marinate the legs with lemon juice and oregano and bake. Once it’s done, top it with fresh grated feta cheese and broil until golden.
I keep this simple and serve it with a salad on the side or you can make this with one of my favorite summer sides, Sauteed Zucchini with Summer Tomatoes.
I first published this recipe back in 2009 using skinless chicken thighs, but a year or two ago the USDA changed the data for chicken thighs and the calories, fat and points increased so much, I started using drumsticks instead. There’s a part of me that hopes they made a mistake but until then I use thighs less often.
The drumsticks I used were pretty small, so if yours are really large the points may increase slightly. Hope you enjoy!
