  • Lay the chicken pieces over the garlic cloves.
  • Top the chicken, in order, with water, chicken stock, lemon juice, oregano, salt, and pepper.
  • Arrange half of the lemon slices on top of the chicken.
  • Roast in oven, turning occasionally and being careful to return the lemon slices on top, until the chicken is golden and most of the liquid has evaporated. Internal temperature of the chicken should be 160° F. Time will vary from 10 to 20 minutes depending on the thickness of the chicken.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan and serve garnished with the whole roasted garlic cloves and remaining lemon slices.
