My hometown has this Greek restaurant that does an unbelievable job using lemon and oregano on a lot of their dishes. The chicken there is to die for. I wanted a low sodium lemon oregano chicken recipe that could compete, but could also be made at home for myself and my family.

    • Brittany,

      Our nutrition labels are being re-done.

      We swapped our Recipe Software on the entire website and things got a little wonky with the nutrition labels.

      The serving size is not 1g for this recipe. My apologies.

      A serving size is half a chicken breast. I have updated the nutrition for this recipe.

      Sorry for the inconvenience.
