Garlicky Lemon Caper Chicken w/ Rosemary & Thyme

This chicken recipe is high up on my favorites list along with my onion smothered chicken and mustard seed & smoked paprika chicken. The rosemary and thyme add a nice earthiness, and the capers add just the right amount of mouth-puckering kick.

Garlicky Lemon Caper Chicken w/ Rosemary & Thyme


1 tsp olive oil

  1. Combine all ingredients but chicken in a large ziploc bag. Add chicken and allow to marinate for at least one hour (overnight is even better).
