Just a Matter of Thyme Grilled Chicken

Just a Matter of Thyme Grilled Chicken!     Who comes up with these names?    Not very original, I know!   These days my brain often freezes (some even say chemo brain….and some just say old age is gettin’ to you girlfriend), and instead of dwelling on the perfect name for a recipe…..I just grab the first thing that comes to mind!

This marinade is QUICK and EASY!!  Leaving you plenty of time for more important things, like tooling away in the garden creating more beds that PT can complain about…. trying to figure out how to use this Soldering Gun that I had to have for creating jewelry…..dreaming of cutting frames with the compound miter saw that I don’t own yet……or better yet,  reading a great book in a hammock by the pool!   Oh, if only I had a pool in my backyard!!  LOL!

Tip:  Buy chicken breasts in bulk and split them up into gallon ziploc bags…4-6 breasts per bag.  Pour marinade over chicken and freeze.  How perfect is that…chicken marinades while it is thawing….brilliant time-saver!


~Just a matter of Thyme~ Grilled Chicken

 4 chicken breasts, pound to even thickness (or take a shortcut & buy chicken cutlets)
½ cup lime juice
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 Tbsp honey
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
3 cloves garlic
½ tsp pepper


* Mix all of the marinade ingredients together and set aside.  Put chicken breasts in ziploc bag and pour marinade on top, turning to coat the breasts.  Put chicken in refrigerator fo 3-6 hours, turning bag every so often.  Grill until meat thermometer registers 165 degrees F.

  1. Nice! I’m always looking for simple recipes to make after work. This one is perfect. Defrost and marinate during the day, ready to cook when I get home. 🙂

    • I don’t do it as often as I should either, but with most of us buying in bulk these days to save $, it is the perfect opportunity to try different marinades. I have a wonderful one for pork chops coming soon.

      • Ou, I’ll have to keep an eye out for it! We live in Korea so meat can be quite expensive. Chicken and pork are cheap…ish comparatively but anything else is too expensive for us. A jaunt to Costco once a month and our freezer is stocked with lots of chicken breasts and pork cutlets so I’m always on the lookout for different ideas for them! 🙂
