Lemon Thyme Chicken

Lemon Thyme Chicken

Regarding BBQ, Inc.

This is a quick and easy way to prepare tender and delicious chicken breasts. Grill them hot and fast and enjoy with your favorite side dish. For best results, try flattening the chicken to nearly half its thickness by covering with plastic wrap and using a kitchen mallet or rolling pin. This allows the marinade to penetrate more efficiently.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Combine oil, lemon juice, thyme, salt and garlic in a small bowl. Place chicken in shallow baking dish and cover with mixture. Let sit in refrigerator for 30-60 minutes. Preheat grill. Place chicken on grill and cook for 12-14 minutes, turning half way through cooking time. Chicken breasts should be tender and juices clear.
