Cheesy Herbed Chicken

Cheesy Herbed ChickenI was planning to make Mediterranean Meatballs with Tzatziki one night, but I hadn't gotten around to making a new batch of yogurt for the sauce. I ended up just making hamburgers. I figured I could make a Mediterranean herbed chicken and serve that with tzatziki instead. But when I still hadn't made yogurt several days later, I just tossed the ingredients for the meatballs in with the chicken and this was the result. Very yummy and no need to plan ahead with the yogurt.

¾ c minced onion (4 oz)
2 T fresh parsley (or 2 t dried)
1 t lemon pepper
¼ c oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1½ lbs)
½ c grated Romano (1 oz)
  1. Mix together onions, parsley, lemon pepper, and oil. Marinate chicken breasts 10 min to overnight.
  2. Bake on a metal rack over a baking pan at 400°F for 20 min.
  3. Sprinkle cheese over each breast and continue cooking for another 15 min or until cooked through.
