Ingredients Needed For This Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Recipe:
- Whole grain mustard
- Fresh lemon juice
- Minced garlic
- Cayenne pepper
- Red pepper flakes
- Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
How To Make This Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Recipe:
Begin by whisking together the whole grain mustard, honey, lemon juice, minced garlic, paprika, salt, cayenne pepper, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl.
Once that is all put together, pour everything but about 4 tablespoons of the honey mustard sauce over the chicken breasts and toss it until the chicken is covered in the honey mustard sauce.
Then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the chicken marinate at room temperature for about 30-45 minutes.
While the chicken is marinating, go and preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
When the grill is hot and the chicken is done marinating, put the chicken on the grill and let it cook for 6-7 minutes on each side or until the juice from the chicken runs clear.
After you pull the chicken off the grill pour the reserved honey mustard sauce over the grilled chicken and let it rest under aluminum foil for about 5 and then serve the chicken with your favorite sides.
NOTE: Do not use marinade that has touched the raw chicken to put on top of the cooked chicken. This will cause food poisoning. Make sure to reserve some of the maridate at the beginning.
