This is one of my all time favorite AND frugal chicken recipes.
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), cut up
1 to 2 tablespoons dried oregano
In a small bowl, combine the butter, salad dressing mix and lemon juice. Place chicken in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Spoon butter mixture over chicken.
Cover and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Uncover. Baste with pan drippings; sprinkle with oregano. Bake 15-20 minutes longer or until chicken juices run clear. Yield: 6 servings.
