Grilled Lemon and Garlic Chicken

on the grill. doing wonderful 
added to a tasty salad, amazing
       Found this recipe on a card somewhere (quite a while ago) and looked interesting. So as usual I modified it somewhat and this is what I came up with.
       Was very tasty and Suzie said yes its a keeper. Easy to do.


8 pieces of chicken, (I used 4 legs and 4 thighs)
1 tsp salt
5 lemons 3 juiced and 2 cut in half ( I used 1 cut in half for the 2 of us)
3 tbsp Extra virgin Olive oil
1 Tbsp Garlic paste
4 sprigs fresh Thyme

Directions :

1: Place chicken in baking dish and salt on all sides, Chill for 10 minutes up to 12 hours.
2: Preheat grill to med high. In saucepan mix together lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and leaves from 2 sprigs on thyme. Heat mixture until it starts to simmer, 1to 2 minutes. Remove from heat, pour sauce over the chicken and reserve 1/2 in sauce pan.
3: Place chicken  on grill and cook 2 minutes turn and cook 2 minutes more. Reduce heat to low and cook  20 - 25 minutes longer turning 2-3 times.
4: Set lemon halves cut side down on the grill. Using BBQ tongs dunk grilled chicken pieces in reserved sauce, coating all sides. Return to grill and cook until done. Transfer to serving platter and garnish with grilled lemons and remaining thyme sprigs.
