1 ½ tsp black pepper, ground
1 Tbsp hot pepper, chopped
1 tsp hot pepper, dried, crushed
2 tsp oregano, crushed

Mix all ingredients, except chicken, in a large bowl. Rub seasoning mixture over chicken pieces and marinate in refrigerator for at least 6 hours. Preheat oven to 350 ºF. Space chicken evenly on nonstick or lightly greased baking pan. Nonstick baking spray may be used, if desired. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 30 to 40 minutes, or until chicken is tender. Serve with you favorite greens.
