Cut chickens into serving pieces and place in a shallow bowl. Sprinkle with olive oil, finely chopped garlic, grated rind and juice of 1 lemon, and thyme, and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Marinate chicken pieces in this mixture for at least 2 hours, turning pieces from time to time.

When ready to cook: butter a rectangular ovenproof baking dish generously.
