What I love about grilled herb mustard chicken
After a crazy and eventful weekend, I’m back to my normal routine of recipes and cooking. I don’t know what it is, but lately I seem to be drawn to simpler recipes.
Things I used to make a lot when I first started cooking. Maybe it’s because I’ve been busy planning a bachelorette party and packing/sorting through all of our wedding gifts that still have yet to be used.
Either way, this recipe is one of those easy recipes and so was the Easy Chicken Pot Pie that I posted last week. Both were recipes I made a lot when we were living in Wichita, and making them again is bringing back some great memories of our first years of moving around for hockey.
This recipe in particular – grilled herb mustard chicken is as simple as it gets. You make a quick mustard based sauce with dried herbs and you brush it on the chicken every so often as its grilling.
That’s it. It’s packed with flavor and makes a really great burger alternative for grilling. Perfect for your upcoming Labor Day festivities or just any old weeknight meal.
Here’s what you’ll need to make it
How to make grilled herb mustard chicken
Mix the sauce. Whisk together the mustard, seasonings and water until it has a nice smooth consistency. Coat the chicken with the sauce and save the remaining sauce.
Grill the chicken. This should take about 10-12 minutes, flipping the chicken halfway through. The chicken should be 165˚F when done. Brush more sauce on the chicken a few minutes before the chicken is done grilling.
