basil chicken marinade
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • one heaping teaspoon of basil pesto
  • about a quarter teaspoon of dried oregano
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  1. Mix ingredients together in a one cup Pyrex cup.
  2. Pour the marinade over the chicken thighs. Turn the thighs over completely to ensure the marinade covers them completely.
  3. Bake chicken thighs at 400° for about an hour.
Can substitute arugula pesto for the basil pesto.

I used the boneless skinless chicken thighs from Costco which come in individual packs of 5 for a total of 6 packs.
