Lemon, zest and juice1
Lemon, cut into wedges, for serving1
Garlic, coarsely chopped1 clove
Honey2 tsp.
Kosher Salt2 tsp.
Black Pepper, freshly ground1 tsp.
Fresh Thyme, leaves stripped or dried Thyme1 to 2 sprigs, or 1 tsp.
High-quality Olive Oil or Vegetable Oil1/2 cup

Preparation

To make the marinade, add the garlic, honey, salt, pepper, and thyme to the mixing bowl with the lemon juice and zest. Whisk until the salt crystals and honey dissolve. Slowly whisk in the olive oil.

Wash the chicken breasts under cold running water and pat dry with paper towels.

Transfer to a sturdy resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them, massaging the bag to distribute the marinade evenly. Refrigerate for 4 hours.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 400F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Drain the chicken breasts and discard the marinade. Arrange the chicken breasts directly on the grill grate and grill until the internal temperature is 165. If desired, grill the reserved lemon wedges alongside the chicken, cut sides down, for 15 minutes.

Serve the chicken on a platter or plates with the lemon wedges.
