Let's get all of the ingredients together that you will need to prepare

You will also need:
10 cloves of minced garlic
4 tablespoons of margarine
3 large lemons
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
salt, pepper, and parsley.
You should begin by preheating your broiler. Take your chicken and rinse
underwater and skin, then rinse again well under cold water and place
in a large baking dish.
Squeeze the lemons and reserve the juice.
Sprinkle about one half of the garlic over the chicken and dab 1⁄2
of the margarine on various spots on the chicken. Pour 1⁄2 of the
juice from the lemons on your chicken, and season with the oregano, salt,
and pepper. Broil for about 15 minutes, remember to baste quite often.

to become too crispy, you can change from broil to bake and bake at 350
degrees until the chicken is completely done. Remove the chicken from
the oven and pour the remaining sauce from the baking dish over your chicken
