1/2 cup good olive oil

Heat a dry, preferably cast iron, skillet over low heat. Crumble oregano into skillet and toast, stirring gently with a wooden spoon, until fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Mix oregano with remaining ingredients and marinate chicken, refrigerated, at least 4 and up to 8 hours. Bake on a rack at 350 for about 45 minutes, or grill.
