A trio of Greek flavors gives these chicken quarters Mediterranean flair. The cheese is sprinkled over the cooked chicken, which is then broiled until golden.
1 chicken (3 to 3 1/2 pounds), quartered
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
1 tablespoon butter, cut into 4 pieces
1 1/2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (about 1/3 cup)
Chicken with Lemon, Oregano, and Feta Cheese Recipe at
Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Coat the chicken with the oil; arrange the pieces, skin-side up, in a large roasting pan. Sprinkle the chicken with the oregano, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Top each piece of chicken with a piece of the butter.

Cook the chicken until the breasts are just done, about 30 minutes. Remove the breasts and continue to cook the legs until done, about 5 minutes longer. Remove the roasting pan from the oven; return the breasts to the pan. Top the chicken pieces with the feta cheese. Press any cheese that rolls off into the pan back onto the chicken. Baste the chicken with the pan juices.

Heat the broiler. Broil the chicken until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Serve with the pan juices.

Menu Suggestions

Balance the tanginess of lemon and feta with a mild side dish such as orzo tossed with a little olive oil or sautéed zucchini.

I've made this so many times. My family loves it. I usually use boneless, skinless chicken breasts. The chicken comes out really tender made this way. A major plus is how easy it is to make when you want to get something in the oven quickly.
