    I buy a fresh, juicy, Lemon Pepper Rotiserrie chicken "or two" from the supermarket...
    I get home, cut it into parts, and place pieces "upside down" in a baking pan...

    I season with salt, fresh ground pepper, dried Oregano, and a generous dusting of garlic powder...
    I'll do fresh minced garlic if I feel like chopping...
    I flip the pieces over, "skin side up" and season again the same way...
    I drizzle extra virgin Olive Oil, and squeeze Lemon juice over it...

    All this prep takes 3 minutes...
    I then broil it for 5-7 minutes to let the flavors meld a bit...

    The skin gets crispy, and I'll spoon some liquid over the pieces before I serve it with lemon wedges...

    The boring, kinda bland, factory chicken really gets Greek.
    Smells and tastes great!

    I imagine how restaurants or stores can handle the time consuming parts of a recipe
    if I'm pinched for time...

    Like my "KFC Crispy Strip Chicken Parmegiana"...

    Let them do the work!

    This Greek Chicken is great served with Pasta with butter, garlic and grated Parmesan cheese...

    I rub a chicken with salt and pepper.

    Then I zest 2 lemons and stuff it under the skin(all over) with fresh oregano.

    Sprinkle salt and pepper inside and poke a fork into the zested lemons and put them inside.

    Then roast as usual.
