I recommend placing the chicken in a ziploc bag with the mixture at least 6 hours. It makes the most flavorful juicy chicken ever. It is perfect for grilled chicken.
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
4 sprigs fresh thyme
2 cloves garlic peeled and sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
This was enough marinade for 2 large split bone in chicken breasts. The cooking will vary depending on what pieces of chicken you use. I grilled these chicken breasts on propane at 350-300 degrees for about an hour. I started skin side up and flipped them after about 45 minutes.

These are good in the oven, on the grill, or even on the smoker. Tasty!
