How To Make Grilled Chicken Breasts with Lemon and Thyme

Enjoy succulent bites of these charred, grilled chicken breasts, made flavorful by the bold marinade of lemon juice, thyme, and red pepper flakes!

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 35 minutes



  • tbsplemon juice
  • ¼tspdried thyme
  • ½tspdried red pepper flakes
  • 1garlic clove
  • ¼cupolive oil
  • ¼tspsalt
  • ¼tspfresh ground black pepper
  • lbschicken breasts,(about 4 chicken breasts), bone-in


  1. Light the grill or heat the broiler.

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

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

  4. Serve warm, and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • Try any preferred dried herb in place of the thyme. Marjoram, oregano, rosemary, or sage are all good choices.
  • 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
