A short trip to the Mediterranean: Lemon Thyme Chicken
Wash, pat dry the chicken breasts and season with salt and pepper. Peel the garlic and chop finely. Wash the lemon in hot water and cut half into thin slices. Take out the other half.

In a large and heavy pan, heat the remaining oil and brown the poultry meat on both sides until lightly browned. Add the remaining garlic, thyme sprigs and lemon wedges and sauté briefly. Deglaze everything with white wine and stock and cook for about 20 minutes. Season to taste and serve with a green salad.
