Grilled or Broiled Lemon Thyme Chicken Breasts

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by joolzcd

Cook time includes 30 minutes to marinate. This is also good if you substitute tarragon for the thyme. One tsp of dried thyme can be used instead of fresh. From Pillsbury.

I made this to go on top of a chicken Caesar salad. I had intended to grill it, but the weather had turned bad, and this being January, that happens often. I did scallop (pound thin) the chicken breasts, marinated overnight, and ended up just cooking them in a skillet on the stove, about 12 minutes or so. I quite enjoyed. Thanks.
