This could end up being your favourite chicken dish. It is deliciously tasty!   The marriage of thyme, lemon and garlic go so well with chicken. The skin is crispy, and the meat is moist and tender.  Infused over caramelised onion rings makes a perfect meal anytime of day. 

I used chicken Maryland for this dish, that’s basically a cut that contains both the thigh and the leg.  Try and use fresh lemons, it does make all the difference.  If you can’t find fresh thyme, dried thyme works well too. Use about a teaspoon.  Keep an eye on it as it bakes, you can let all the liquid dry out a little so it caramelises but don’t burn it!  Then add more water so you have a nice sauce.  Baste every 20-30 minutes. 

Such a simple dish with basic ingredients.  Enjoy lemon and thyme chicken today.
