  1. Mix oil, wine, garlic, parsley, oregano, salt and pepper (to taste).

  2. Marinate chicken in a shallow pan, covered, for several hours or overnight.

  3. Remove chicken and reserve marinade. Place breasts, skin- side up in 1 or 2 roasting pans; do not crowd. Brush with part of reserved marinade. Bake in 375 F oven, basting occasionally with marinade, for 40 minutes until skin is crisp. Sprinkle part of Parmesan over the chicken and return to oven just until Parmesan begins to turn golden. Line a warm platter with steamed spinach leaves, then with rice. Arrange chicken breasts on top and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese. Garnish with red pepper strips.

  4. (NOTE: Chicken breasts can be grilled about 4 inches from coals for 20 minutes, turning and basting with marinade until chicken is golden.)

  5. Makes 8 servings.
