Grilled Chicken breast with Lemon and Thyme

Growing Thyme at home inspired me to cook something.

I opened the fridge and decided to use whatever I find.


  • 1/2 Kilo of skinless boneless Chicken breast
  • 2 Lemons
  • 3 spoons Olive oil
  • Pepper and Salt
  • 1 tea spoon of smashed garlic
  • Fresh Thyme
  • Flour (Decided not to use it)


I though it would taste good if I soak the Chicken with Lemon, so I squeezed a Lemon and a half into a plastic bag to soak the Chicken in it. Before that I splashed the Chicken breast with some salt and pepper. After that I placed the Chicken in the bag with some fresh Thyme leafs.


And I left it in the fridge for about an hour.

When it was cooking time I spilled the olive oil on the pan and was heating it up on low fire, because I know olive oil gets hot quickly. Now it is garlic time. I love garlic, actually I love eating it but not getting it ready to be eaten. Thankfully my dear wife has already smashed some garlic and was stored in the fridge. Phew!

I tossed the garlic in the pan and moved them around till they started getting brown. Then I took the Chicken out of the plastic bag and started cooking it. I also spilled the Lemon which was left in the bag into the pan. Kept on flipping the Chicken until the Lemon and olive oil almost completely dried and the Chicken was brown. Yum! The smell was awesome! Oh writing this now made drool 🙂


After the grilling was done I sprayed around some more fresh not cooked Thyme and squeezed the left half of Lemon over the Chicken. That’s set! It is now ready. To add more to the dish I just fried some french fries and I’m done.



I never did a big meal before, no bigger than a Burger with french fries, but I was happy about the results and my wife approve too 😀
