We know, barely-seasoned chicken breasts are boring. They’re essentially the butt of every joke that positions healthy food as bland.

This dish, however, adds just enough flavor via extra-virgin olive oil, lemon, and oregano to take the lean, white meat into more flavorful territory.

It’s also a flavor that pairs well with a million different things, so you can make a whole batch of these at the beginning of the week and then chop it up to top salads and serve it with veggie sides for dinner. #mealprep
