  • Combine the butter and olive oil in a small pot and heat gently until the butter is melted.
  • Place half the mixture in a roasting pan.
  • Season the chicken pieces with the oregano, salt, and pepper, and place in the pan.
  • Combine the lemon juice with the remaining butter mixture and baste the chicken with it.
  • Bake the chicken in a 375F (190C) oven, basting several times, until the skin is crispy and the chicken is cooked through, 30 to 40 minutes.
  • Transfer the chicken to a platter and add the boiling water to the roasting pan, scraping the bottom to dissolve the brown bits.
  • Transfer the liquid to a small pot over moderate heat and stir in the cornstarch mixture.
  • Add any remaining basting liquid and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper and serve the gravy along with the chicken.
