Yum-Tastic Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Standard

PIN-WIN – Helllloooooo deliciousness – I found my go-to chicken! This chicken was superb with a delicious crunchy sweet and tangy marinade. This is definitely a pin-win with not only myself enjoying it, but my little boy and hunny too. Now, I’ve already made this dish twice this week, and I have no complaints or any big change to this recipe, and haven’t even had any leftovers to bring with me to work. But seriously, all kidding aside, this is a super easy delicious chicken. Recipe as follows:

Ingredients:
1/2 cup of any Whole Grain Mustard (I used regular plain mustard because that’s what I had, but a good mustard would have been fabulous)
1/2 cup of Honey – I prefer raw honey
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
1 Garlic Clove, smashed and minced
1/2 teaspoon Paprika – I added a bit more than this because I love the smokiness
1/2 teaspoon Salt – sea salt is also my preference
1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes – I also added a bit more of this to add a bit more spice
4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts – (I prefer to filet them and make them very thin but that’s my preference)

Directions:

-Whisk all ingredients in a small bowl.

-Reserve 4 tablespoons of sauce and but take the remaining and combine that in a  plastic bag or bowl and set aside to marinade for anywhere from 30 minutes to overnight.

-Preheat grill on a medium to high heat- With a thin cut chicken you can have your heat high to get a beautiful crispy outside, but be careful not to cook it too long. Thinner cut chicken should only take about 2 minutes on each side. If it is a thicker cut of chicken breast, you may want to turn the heat a tad lower to medium so that you don’t crisp them too much. Thicker cuts tend to take about 6-7 minutes per side. Meat thermometers are your friend! Overcooked chicken=chewing tire while undercooked chicken=you’ll get this thing called salmonella, not sure if you’ve heard of it….

-After you remove the chicken front he grill, Pour the reserved 4 tablespoons of honey-mustard sauce over the chicken breast and let rest under foil for about 5 minutes

-Eat… and then you can love me
