Ingredients
  1. 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, that have been pounded to even thickness
  2. 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  3. 3 tablespoons melted butter
  4. 2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  5. 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  6. 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  7. 1/2 teaspoon freshly-cracked black pepper
  8. optional garnishes: fresh lemon slices, extra fresh thyme sprigs
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 450°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the garlic, melted butter, lemon juice, and thyme until combined. Set aside.
  3. Pour the melted butter mixture into the baking dish, and place the chicken breasts on top of it in an even layer. Use a pastry brush to brush the butter mixture all over the chicken breasts until they are completely coated on both sides. Then sprinkle each chicken breast evenly with a generous pinch of salt and pepper.
  4. Bake for 5 minutes. Then remove the pan from the oven and brush the chicken again thoroughly with the butter mixture. Bake again for 5 minutes, remove and brush. Bake again for 5-8* minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink. (So the chicken will bake for 15-18 minutes total. If you use a cooking thermometer to measure the temperature thickest part of the breast, it should be between 160-170°F. The FDA recommends 170°F.)
  5. *Or, if you want the chicken to be a little bit browned and crispier on top, you can turn the broiler on high for the final 3-5 minutes and broil the chicken until it is cooked through and extra browned on top. Keep a close eye on the chicken so that it does not overcook and/or burn.
  6. Once the chicken is cooked, remove the pan from the oven and brush the chicken thoroughly with the butter mixture once more. Loosely cover the pan with aluminum foil, and let the chicken rest for at least 5-10 minutes. Serve immediately, garnished with extra lemon slices and thyme sprigs if desired.
