Cook Time: 10 minutes

Chicken Thighs w/ Thyme & Lemon

Really simple marinade and a great flavor. Very lemony.


1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (about 6 lemons)
1/4 cup chopped fresh or 1 Tablespoon dried thyme
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 1/2 Tablespoons honey
16 skinless boneless chicken thighs (about 3 pounds)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper


1. Place first 5 ingredients in a large zip- top plastic bag. Add chicken; seal bag. Chill 2 hours, turning occasionally.

2. Prepare grill or broiler.

3. Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place chicken on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 5 minutes on each side or until chicken is done.


*When I make recipes using chicken thighs, I like to spend a little more money and get some nicer quality, organic chicken at Whole Foods or a similar place. Regular thighs tend to have SO much fat on them. The organic will have a more meaty portion. Cut off any extra fat.

    So tasty! I utilized oregano since I didn’t have thyme on hand. Delicious!
