Lemon Thyme Chicken

This recipe is an adaptation of Emeril Lagasse's Lemon Thyme Grilled Chicken

Review: I found this to be a great stand by meal to cook, a family favorite. The flavors are nice and light and refreshing, and the chicken tends to stay moist.

Served With: I always double the lemon thyme mixture and toss it with thin spaghetti noodles. The chicken is served over the spaghetti and a side salad is our veggie of choice with this meal. A nice loaf of bread doesn't hurt either ;)

Any Alterations to the Recipe: Because this is an altered grilled chicken recipe, the alterations are in the recipe I've listed already.

Lemon Thyme Chicken
4 Boneless chicken breasts
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
The zest of one lemon
The juice of one lemon
1 1/2 Teaspoons of dried thyme
Salt and pepper

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
Step 2: In a small mixing bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons of olive oil, thyme, lemon zest and juice and mix thoroughly.
Step 3: Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Pour the lemon thyme mixture over the chicken until well coated.
Step 4: Bake the chicken at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until cooked through.
