Zesty Lemon-Thyme Chicken


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 lemon, divided (1/2 sliced, 1/2 juiced)
  • 6-8 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 garlic cloves sliced
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 tbsp Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
  • Kosher salt & pepper to taste


Thoroughly wash the chicken.  Lay out chicken on a cutting board and make about 4-5 small slices in each breast.   Stuff the sliced garlic cloves and about 1/2 of the thyme sprigs into the incisions of the chicken.  Salt and pepper the chicken.  Place chicken in a glass dish or large Ziploc bag.  Mix Worcestershire, soy sauce and lemon juice in a bowl and pour over chicken.  Allow chicken to marinate 2-3 hours.   If baking the chicken, preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes on a cast-iron grill pan.  Lay lemon slices and thyme sprigs on chicken.  When temperature reaches 165 degrees Farenheit remove chicken and cover loosely with foil and let sit for 5 minutes.  If grilling, heat grill over medium-high heat.  Cook until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.  Wrap loosely in foil and let sit for 5 minutes.
