Number of Servings: 6


    1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    1 tablespoon coarsely ground black pepper
    1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    3 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 2 1/4 pounds), halved

    For gremolata
    1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
    2 large garlic cloves, minced
    1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

    lemon slices
    thyme sprigs


In a bowl whisk together lemon juice, pepper, and salt to taste and add oil in a stream, whisking until marinade is emulsified. With a rolling pin or smooth side of a meat pounder flatten chicken 1/4 inch thick between sheets of plastic wrap. In a large resealable plastic bag marinate chicken in marinade, chilled, 30 minutes.
Prepare grill.

Grill chicken on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals until just cooked through, about 4-6 minutes on each side. Chicken can also be roasted in an oven preheated to 425F, for 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through.

Make gremolata:
In a small bowl stir together gremolata ingredients.

Serve chicken sprinkled with gremolata and garnished with lemon and thyme.

Number of Servings: 6
