Perfect-Every-Thyme Marinade Recipe

I prepare this often at shows when demonstrating how to cook on gas grills. People are always pleased with the fantastic flavor. It really is perfect every time!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:4-6 servings


  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)


  • 1. In a small saucepan, combine the first four ingredients; cook and stir over low heat. Bring to a boil (mixture will foam). Remove from the heat; cool.
  • 2. Pour into a large resealable bag; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight.

"It was good but not outstanding. Tasted like exactly what was in it. Flavors didn't meld together."

"Great taste and kept the chicken so moist. I used agave nectar in place of the honey to keep my blood sugar from spiking, and it worked well."

"I love this recipe. We have eaten it directly from the grill; cold a day later as sandwiches, over a salad, etc. The flavor is great."
