Lemon Mustard Chicken on the Grill
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.
Dijon Mustard Marinade for Grilled Chicken Ingredients
- Fresh lemon juice or bottled (original recipe called for bottled)
- Dijon mustard

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.
What to Serve with Grilled Dijon Mustard Chicken
I served it with some roasted asparagus and skillet potatoes. It would also be great served on top of a favorite salad.
This recipe is guaranteed to become your new favorite chicken marinade. It’s a new favorite of ours.
