6 servings

Salad dressing mix and a generous sprinkling of oregano add the rich herb flavor to this tender baked chicken from Nancy Moore of Candler, North Carolina. It's priced right at just 83 cents a serving and great over rice or noodles.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), cut up
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons dried oregano

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the butter, salad dressing mix and lemon juice. Place chicken in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Spoon butter mixture over chicken.
  2. Cover and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Uncover. Baste with pan drippings; sprinkle with oregano. Bake 15-20 minutes longer or until chicken juices run clear.
