The chicken needs to marinate for at least 6 hours and up to 12 hours to really soak up the flavor of the herbs and garlic. I’ve used thyme, oregano, and dill, but parsley and rosemary would also be good.

I used fresh oregano and dill and dried thyme. Thyme is probably the only herb I enjoy better in dry form. You would be fine using dried oregano too, but I wouldn’t use dried dill. It has virtually no flavor.

The marinade can be made in the morning, let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator all day and you can pull supper together in about 15 minutes. Gotta love that.
