1. Grilled Chicken Breasts with Lemon and Thyme


A bold mixture of red-pepper flakes, garlic, thyme, lemon juice, and olive oil serves as a spicy marinade for bone-in chicken breasts. If you want your chicken spicier still, increase the red pepper or leave the breasts in the marinade for an hour or two.


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried red-pepper flakes

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper

  • 4 bone-in chicken breasts (about 2 1/4 pounds in all variations)

  • Variations include

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


- Use a quartered chicken instead of bone-in breasts. Cook the breast sections as directed in Step 2 and allow thirteen minutes per side for the leg quarters.


- Use boneless, skinless chicken breasts instead of bone-in breasts. Grill them until just done, about five minutes per side over moderately high heat.
