Day 56: Lemon Garlic Chicken

Here is a recipe for all of those people who think chicken is boring.  This recipe is full of flavour and is so tender it practically melts in your mouth. Enjoy!

2 chicken breasts, cut into thirds
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
3 T lemon juice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp dry thyme leaves
salt and pepper

1) In a small, shallow bowl add all ingredients except the chicken and mix until combined.
2) Add chicken pieces and turn to coat all sides of the meat.
3) Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.
4) In a fry pan add 3 T of butter and fry the chicken on high for 2 minutes on each side.  Reduce heat and continue cooking on low temperature until chicken is cooked through.
5) Remove from heat and serve.
