Grilled Chicken With Lemon

Grilled Chicken With Lemon

Recipe source :  Adapted from "Everyday Chicken" by Parragon Publishing

You know, sometimes recipes are discovered and come in unexpected ways. 

Take this dish for example. We were celebrating Christmas and year end party in the office and during the gift exchange,  my colleague got herself a cookbook.

I, being curious and love cooking, thumbed through the pages of this cookbook once the gift was unwrapped and everybody else too flipped through the pages. This recipe caught my attention.


3 chicken whole thighs
Grated rind of 1 lemon
Juice from 1 lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 sprigs of fresh thyme, plus extras for garnishing
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper



1.  Prick the skin of chicken all over with a fork.
2.  Put chicken pieces into a dish, add lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, thyme, salt, pepper and lemon rind. Mix well. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for two hours.
3.  Preheat grill or broiler.
4.  Baste in marinade and grill for about 30 to 40 minutes. Basting and turning occasionally.
5.  Garnish with thyme.
