Ingredients
  • 6   
    skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 2 pounds total)
  • 4   teaspoons 
    Jamaican jerk seasoning
  • 8   
    garlic, minced
  • 2   teaspoons 
    snipped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 2   teaspoons 
    finely shredded lemon peel
  • 2   tablespoons 
    lemon juice
  •  
    Olive oil cooking spray or 2 teaspoons olive oil
  •  
    Lemon wedges
Directions
1.
Place a chicken breast half between sheets of plastic wrap; pound gently with the flat side of a meat mallet until an even 1/2 inch thickness. Repeat with remaining chicken. In a small bowl, combine jerk seasoning, garlic, thyme, and lemon peel. Brush chicken breasts with lemon juice. Sprinkle garlic mixture evenly over chicken breasts; rub in with your fingers. Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 24 hours.
2.
Lightly coat chicken with olive oil cooking spray or brush lightly with olive oil.
3.
Preheat an indoor electric grill. Place chicken on the grill rack. If using a covered grill, close lid. Grill until chicken is tender and no longer pink. (For a covered grill, allow 4 to 5 minutes. For an uncovered grill, allow 8 to 10 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling.)
4.
To serve, slice chicken; pass lemon wedges. Makes 6 servings.
Variation
  • Broiler Method: Preheat broiler. Place chicken on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat for 6 to 10 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning once halfway through broiling.
Variation
  • Grilling Method: Place chicken on grill rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat. Grill for 6 to 10 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning once halfway through grilling.
