Saffron Thyme Grilled Chicken
Prepare to indulge with our Saffron Thyme Grilled Chicken. Quick and easy, you can marinade this dish ahead of time or overnight for a truly simple meal. Infused with the delicate flavors of Lemonfair Saffron and Lemonfair's Spanish Roja garlic powder, and enhanced by the vibrant zest and juice of a lemon, each bite is full of flavor. The addition of fresh thyme, salt, and pepper brings balance and depth to the marinade.
Allow the chicken to marinate in these flavors for at least an hour or, for optimal taste infusion, overnight in the refrigerator. If you prefer stovetop cooking, fear not, for a few minutes per side in a well-heated pan will also yield delectable results. To serve, garnish with fresh basil leaves and accompany with lemon wedges, adding a refreshing zing to every bite.
