Paleo Chicken with Lemon and Thyme

Just as lemon alone is wonderful with chicken, the addition of thyme adds a different and equally wonderful flavour.  Here is another way to use that thyme plant that's growing in your garden.  This recipe serves 4 very generously. (Image from

Ingredients :

-  4 large chicken breasts, on the bone and with the skin attached
-  1/4 cup of melted butter
-  1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice
-  1 tablespoon of chopped garlic
-  2 tablespoon of fresh chopped thyme (or 2 teaspoons of dried)
-  1/2 teaspoon of paprika
-  salt and ground pepper to taste

Directions :
  • Preheat the oven to 425'F
  • Place the chicken breasts on a rack in a baking pan or casserole, skin side up.
  • Combine the rest of the ingredients and spoon the sauce over the breasts, making sure they are well covered.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until juices run clear.
  • After 20 minutes baste the chicken again with the juices in the pan.

This is a beautiful dish to serve at a dinner party garnished with lemon slices and sprigs of thyme.  You can also use this marinade to cook a whole chicken as in this example from

 “Life isn't about finding yourself.  Life is about creating yourself.”   - George Bernard Shaw
