1 head garlic

1/2 cup red wine vinegar

1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh oregano, plus more for garnish

3 or 4 dried red chile peppers, crushed

Kosher salt

4 pounds bone-in chicken parts (or one 4-pound chicken, cut into 10 pieces)

Pita bread, for serving


  1. Mince 1 clove garlic; smash the rest. Combine the garlic with the vinegar, olive oil, oregano, chiles and 2 teaspoons salt in a large bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450. Arrange the chicken in a roasting pan; roast until cooked through and golden, about 30 minutes. Garnish with oregano. Brush pita bread with the pan drippings to serve with the chicken.
