Ingredients

  • ¼ cup whole grain mustard
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound)

Instructions

Making the Marinade:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the whole grain mustard, Dijon mustard, honey, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, paprika, thyme, salt, and pepper. Reserve a 1/4 cup of the marinade for brushing on the chicken.

Marinating the Chicken:

  • Pour the marinade into a gallon Ziploc bag. Add the chicken breasts to the bag and massage the marinade into the meat until the chicken is well coated. Lay the bag flat on a large plate or baking sheet and place in the refrigerator. Marinate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 8 hours.

Grilling the Chicken:

  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and oil the grates. Remove the chicken from the bag and place on a clean plate. Discard the bag with the marinade.
  • Place the chicken on the grill and cook, covered, for 5 to 7 minutes, depending on the thickness of chicken. Flip and brush with reserved ¼ cup of marinade, not the marinade you discarded in the bag. Cook for an additional 5 to 7 minutes. The internal temperature should be 165°F.
  • Allow the chicken to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before slicing or serving.

Notes

To Bake the Chicken:
  • After marinating the chicken, preheat your oven to 375°F. Spray a large baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place the chicken breasts in the prepared pan. Discard the marinade that's in the bag.
  • Brush the tops of the chicken with reserved marinade.
  • Bake for 20 to 30 minutes (depending on the thickness of your chicken) or until chicken is no longer pink and internal temperature reads 165 degrees F.
