Lemon Chicken with Thyme

A large income is the best recipe for happiness I ever heard of.  –Jane Austen

I got this recipe from my friend Julie, who had it at her son’s wedding.  We grilled this for our 4th of July barbecue and it turned out so moist and delicious!

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon minced fresh thyme leaves (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
  • 2 lbs (or slightly more, if needed) boneless chicken breast

Whisk together oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and thyme.  Pour over the chicken, either in a non-reactive bowl or a zip-top bag and marinate in the fridge for 6 hours or overnight.
