Juicy chicken with fresh lemon and thyme, a perfectly easy and delicious recipe. If you are a bit pressed on time, you can fillet the chicken breasts in half and reduce the cooking time accordingly. 

Serves 4
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic, minced 
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth 
  • Zest from 1 lemon 
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 lemon, cut in wedges 
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano 
  • 1/2 tsp fresh thyme leaves 
  • 4 chicken breasts (you can fillet them in half)
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme   
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray. Add the minced garlic, chicken broth, lemon zest, lemon juice, oregano, and thyme leaves to the dish. Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, to taste. Place the chicken in the baking dish along with the lemon wedges and the two sprigs of thyme. Place into the oven and bake, basting occasionally, for 30-40 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the juices run clear. Remove from the oven and let the meat rest for 5 minutes before serving. Drizzle the pan sauce on top of the slices of chicken and serve.
