Grilled Honey-Mustard Chicken Breast



When I made the coleslaw that meant I must grill something...and soon. So, out came the George Foreman grill. I still had that big bag of chicken breast from Costco. Grilled chicken it was. I made a little marinade of honey, dijon mustard, worcestshire sauce, and rice wine vinegar along with my usual seasoning of salt, pepper and paprika. With errands I had to do, I let this marinate for about 2 hours. When I came back, I grilled away. Cooking it for roughly 10min per side.

The result was an awesome charred look with inside being fully cooked and juicy and tender. The marinade really worked its magic into the meat of the chicken. Slight sweetness of the honey. It was perfect.

You can also bake this, if you don't have a grill. Place it in a preheated 350˚F oven for 30 min.

I served it with some of my coleslaw.

Serves 2.




Grilled Honey-Mustard Chicken Breast

2 boneless chicken breast
Salt
pepper
paprika

marinade:
1 Tbsp Honey
1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp rice wine vinegar

Mix together all the ingredients for the marinade in a small bowl and set aside.

Season the chicken breast with salt, pepper and paprika on both sides and place them on a dish. Pour over the marinade and eb sure to spread it evenly on all sides.

Let it sit for at least 30min to an hour. This may be done in advance.

While the chicken marinates, prepare your grill.

Grill the chicken for roughly 8-10 min on both sides depending on the heat of your grill. Baste the chicken with the leftover marinade. When done remove from the grill and let it sit for 5 min to let the juices redistribute.

Note: You may also bake this in a preheated 350˚F for 25-30min

Honey mustard marinade sounds great for the grilled chicken breast. Delicious!

Phyllis said...

Yum - my hubby would love your honey mustard marinade! So is your George Foreman the next generation kind with the removable plates? I have the original clunker that I never use because it's so hard to wash. And it would be nothing short of a miracle to get such gorgeous char marks from it :)
