  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • onion salt (to taste)
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • 2 cups dry white wine

  • Hot rice (I like a wild rice mixture)
  1. 1. Brown chicken and garlic in a small amount oil in a large frying pan.
  2. 2. Sprinkle herbs, onion salt and pepper on top of chicken.
  3. 3. Pour wine over chicken and herbs.
  4. 4. Wash and cut lemon in half.
  5. 5. Squeeze the lemon over the chicken, being careful not to get any seeds into the sauce; add squeezed lemon to the chicken, wine and herbs.

  7. 7. Serve chicken with a wild rice mixture, spooning the liquid over the rice.
I named this recipe after the song that inspired me to experiment with wine, herbs and chicken which always just seems to go together for some reason. Remember that part of the song that says "parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme" in the classic Simon and Garfunkle song, "Scarborough Fair". I hope you will enjoy my results
