I find chicken uneventful. It’s one of those meats that I could take or leave. However, I came upon a marinade this past week that has changed my mind about our feathered friend. It’s easy to make and so delicious!

This is probably the best chicken marinade I’ve made. I used the required amount of red cider vinegar but then added a splash of balsamic. In addition to dried oregano, I also threw in a hot green chili, fresh oregano, and fresh rosemary. This was so delicious. I only let it marinade for a couple of hours, but I’m sure it would have been even better if it sat in the fridge for 8 hours.
Note: My local farm (Yes, I’m fortunate to live in area with home-grown produce) brings in farm-raised chicken breasts from Maine. The meat was so flavorful and unbelievably juicy. So, try and support your local farmer…. It cost less than grocery store chicken and it tasted much better!
I’ve only made this recipe with tomatoes as I’ve never been able to find tomatillos. I’ve also substituted feta in the recipe. This tastes great with short grain brown rice or on couscous.

“I add in some thyme and a little rosemary. Also, I usually don’t have time to marinade it and it comes out fine. Bake it for a while with a tin foil cover so it doesn’t dry out. Bon Appetit!” - Stephanie Morgan, Mom of , Wellesley, Ma
“The recipe might say the cayenne is optional, but definitely opt for it if you’re going to try this recipe. This roast pork is an alternative to your typical pork chops that feeds a larger group and is perfect for serving to guests (and you definitely don’t have to sacrifice the applesauce). Serve with scalloped or roasted potatoes, green beans, and applesauce,and you have the perfect meal for any occasion!” – Elysha Schickel, RebelMom Editorial Assistant
