Grilled Chicken Breasts with Lemon and Thyme
The combination of lemon and thyme make this chicken very succulent.
Serves: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 to 30 minutes


1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
4 bone-in chicken breasts, (about 2 1/4 pounds in all)

Light the grill or heat the broiler. In a shallow dish, combine the lemon juice with the thyme, red-pepper flakes, garlic, oil, salt, and black pepper. Coat the chicken with the mixture.

Grill the chicken breasts over moderately high heat or broil them for 8 to 10 minutes. Turn and cook until the chicken is just done, about 10 to 20 minutes longer.

Wine Recommendation: Red pepper can be difficult to pair with wine as it accentuates the bitterness of the alcohol. So, bypass high-alcohol wines and try an herbal, light-bodied sauvignon blanc from Collio.
