Lemon Garlic Chicken

I made this last night and my son said it was great... he even had it for breakfast today!  Now that's good :)

Lemon Garlic Chicken
by Mels Kitchen Cafe 

juice of 1 lemon, approximately 3 TBSP
3 TBSP olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic,
about 2 medium cloves
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 lb chicken breasts (I usually cut really thick chicken breasts down to thin them out and make the pieces a little smaller so they absorb the marinade better)

Combine all marinade ingredients. Place chicken in a ziploc bag and pour marinade over chicken. Seal bag and place in fridge overnight. Grill (or cook in frying pan). Serve with sides of your choice or cut into bite sized pieces and add to desired recipe. Note: If you cut your chicken into smaller, bite-sized pieces and then marinate it, you can get away with only letting it marinate for 5 or 6 hours instead of overnight.
