Lemon-Caper Grilled Chicken Recipe

If you're going with grilled chicken for dinner, odds are you're looking to keep the cooking process nice and simple. That's exactly the philosophy behind this lemon chicken recipe: easy, fast, and delicious.

  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • ? cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, sliced into rounds
  • 6-8 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Red pepper flakes, to taste
  • ? cup capers

In a large bowl or plastic bag, add the chicken, olive oil, lemon rounds, and thyme. Make sure the chicken breasts are fully coated and then let marinate for about 25-30 minutes.

When ready, season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook the chicken in a grill pan over medium-high heat, about 6-8 minutes a side, depending on thickness (mine were pretty thick).

To serve, garnish with capers (I also like to grill a few of the marinated lemon rounds to add to the plate as well).
