Lemon Mustard Chicken on the Grill
We recently bought a new grill, so we haver really been into grilling lately. Have to break the new grill in! It’s also been unusually hot here in the NW the last few weeks so turning on the oven is not on my agenda! Grilling is the perfect solution. Just take the heat outside. I also love the ease of grilling and the fact that I can put my husband in charge of it!
Today’s recipe for lemon mustard chicken is perfect for the grill. The recipe came from blog reader Carolyn. In her email she said,
I don’t think I’m a great cook so I wasn’t going to send you any recipes, but when I told my son about it, he encouraged me to send you some of our family’s favorites. Several of them are completely original, the rest I have received from friends, but I have changed things in them to make them the way we like them. I hope you enjoy trying them.
I loved the flavor of this marinade. She recommended marinading the chicken overnight and so I did. I think it helped to tenderize the chicken as well as infuse it with wonderful flavor. The marinade is a combination of fresh lemon juice, dijon mustard, garlic and some herbs de provence. So flavorful. The only tweek I made was to use fresh lemon juice since I had lemons. The original recipe called for bottled lemon juice. So either will work.
I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts.
It was the perfect summer night meal – light and flavorful. I served it with some roasted asparagus and skillet potatoes.
Carolyn said this was her family’s favorite chicken marinade and I can see why! It’s a new favorite of ours.
