Top-ranked recipe named "Lemon Chicken"
Preheat oven to 400 (F). Combine the oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a shallow baking dish. Add the chicken and turn in the oil until coated. Arrange smooth side down and sprinkle with half of the thyme. Arrange the lemon slices around the chicken.
Bake the chicken 8 minutes. Turn the chicken smooth side up. Place a lemon slice on each piece of the chicken and sprinkle with remaining thyme. Bake until the center is no longer pink (about 8-10 min.).
Do not over cook. Serve warm or at room temperature with the pan juices spooned on top.
Use more lemon if desired.
