Today’s lemon mustard chicken recipe is one of those recipes that came from you, my readers!
Lemon Mustard Chicken on the Grill
The weather has warmed up here in Portland and the rain has temporarily stopped so I am ready to get that grill heated up. We actually grill year round here but sometimes I have to stand under an umbrella!! I love grilling for a couple of reasons, the clean up is generally easier and I can get my husband involved in the cooking.
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 marinating 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 but I think chicken thighs would work well too. It was the perfect summer night meal, light and flavorful. I served it with some roasted asparagus and skillet potatoes. It would also be great served on top of a favorite salad.
Carolyn said lemon mustard chicken was her family’s favorite chicken marinade and I can see why! It’s a new favorite of ours.
