Thyme for Chicken!

I begin my blog posting with Thyme Chicken. This is the first time I’ve ever used thyme as a seasoning. Thyme reminds me a bit of rosemary, but I think it tastes better.

Since I was using the oven for my pizza (discussed later), I cut up the chicken into little pieces so that I could saute it quickly in the pan. I always marinate meat in a glass Pyrex. For the marinade, I used: Worcestershire sauce (for chicken), salt, pepper, garlic powder, basil, thyme, and the juice of one lime. To squeeze the juice out easier, I sometimes microwave the lime for about 15 seconds. This is what it looked like when I finished marinating it:

Then, I heated a deep skillet over medium heat for a few minutes and threw the chicken pieces in. I cooked them for about 10 minutes, turning them every couple of minutes. After they were nice and brown, I covered the skillet with a lid and reduced the heat to low. I let them sit for 10 more minutes to get fully cooked.

The end result:

I served it with mashed potatoes and a side salad of spinach, sliced baby tomatoes, orange wedges, and sliced cucumbers. I used balsamic vinegar and olive oil for a dressing (ratio of 1 to 3).

I conclude that thyme is a fantastic seasoning for chicken!
