 Sol Food Chicken is a new meal prep addition.  At the restaurant, Sol Food, it’s called Pollo al Horno (oven-baked chicken) and it’s a very simple yet satisfying garlic & oregano chicken situation. It’s in my rotation because it’s super easy to make (even easier than my Lemon chicken!). Marinate it on a Sunday, eat it on a Monday.

The big bonus is that it’s all done in the oven on a sheet pan so the cleanup is pretty easy.

The only thing you have to be aware of is that it takes about an hour to bake it.

I like it over rice with an arugula salad tossed with lemon & olive oil. I like to mix it all up together in a bowl so the chicken mixes with all the goods.

    It’s in the fridge marinating right now. I’m excited to try it later. It smells divine already. 🙂

    We had this for dinner tonight, and it was a huge hit! I sliced the garlic so we got pieces of roasted garlic on our chicken. It was delicious, even with the minimum 30 minute marinating time–thank you for sharing this recipe.

    This is SOOOO good! My whole family gobbled it up, kiddos included.

  • sasha

    I make a similar dish, just using rosemary instead of oregano. Sometimes I add a splash of lemon juice. Super yum!

  • Jen

    This was SOOOOOO good! So flavorful and easy. Definitely making the rotation

    Was missing some Sol Food since moving back to Canada, so I tried out this recipe and it turned out AMAZING. My local supermarket only had bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs available but they worked just as well. I let them marinate for about 2 hours and it was absolutely delicious! Juicy, soft and so flavourful!
