Steps

  • 1

    Make the marinade: In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, honey, salt, pepper, thyme, lemon zest, and lemon juice until the honey and salt dissolve. Slowly pour in the olive oil and whisk until emulsified.

  • 2

    Place the chicken breasts in a large resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over, massaging the bag to distribute the marinade evenly. Refrigerate for 4 hours.

  • 3

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 400°F and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.

    400 ˚F / 204 ˚C

  • 4

    Remove the chicken breasts from the bag and discard the marinade.

  • 5

    Insert the probe into the center of a chicken breast. Place the chicken directly on the grill grates, close the lid, and cook until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. If desired, grill the lemon wedges until grill marks appear, about 15 minutes.
