Good flavors. I marinated the chicken in the broth mixture for a few hours. I ended up baking this because I don't have grill. I lined my baking pan with foil, put the chicken and the broth in the pan and baked it at 350 for about 25-30 minutes. It was so juicy and tender!

Pretty delicious, and easy. I didn't have thyme, so I used a clove of garlic instead. It turned out great and was very moist. I will make this again for sure. I didn't have a grill, so I cooked it in a glass baking dish lined with foil (not sure if foil was necessary, I'm still new to this cooking thing) and it cooked all the way through 3 pieces of chicken in 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Good stuff!

This chicken is so easy I almost feel like I'm cheating when I say that I "cooked" dinner. I brushed the mixture on about every 3-5 minutes. The chicken was moist and tasty. Next time, I think I'll add some onion powder and garlic to the stock mixture.

The grill was out, so I cooked this in the oven. The ingredients all went into a baking dish, baking at 350 for about 35 minutes, finishing with a quick touch with the broiler. For a little extra flavor, I put an extra splash of lemon juice plus 2 lemon wedges on top of each piece of chicken. The flavors were all very subdued, but thanks to the extra lemon there was a nice lemon kick in every bit. The meat was tender and juicy, and everyone enjoyed it.
