1.  Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, and herbs together in a large bowl.

2.  Add the chicken and toss to coat. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate, at least 30 minutes or overnight.

3.  Preheat the oven to 350F.

4.  Put the chicken on a baking sheet and transfer to the oven (discard extra marinade).

5.  Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, flipping halfway, until cooked through (time will be shorter for tenders than for whole chicken breast).

6.  Remove from the oven and serve with tzatziki.
