Kathiey's Recipe Review "Easy Grilled Honey-Dijon Chicken"
It is officially summer time, at least it feels like it to me, & time to enjoy outdoor grilling. Over the past couple of weeks we have grilled salmon, steak, & burgers. This past weekend I was watching "Cooking For Real" on the food network and saw them fixing Easy Grilled Honey-Dijon Chicken. Food Network It looked not only easy but good as well. So I found the recipe on line, gather all the ingredients and fired up the grill. All this of course with the help of the Grill Master Joe:-)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for grill
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, butterflied
- 1 lime, cut into wedges
In a small bowl, add the honey, mustard, 1 tablespoon of oil and salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well and put the mixture into a large plastic resealable bag. Add the chicken, seal the bag and shake to incorporate. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Preheat the grill to medium heat.
Remove the chicken from the bag and arrange it on a well-oiled grill. Cook until a nice crust forms on both sides, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Let the chicken rest on a serving platter for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with lime wedges.
This recipe required you to butterfly your chicken breasts. I went to Harris Teeter and asked the butcher to do this for me & he was more then happy to help. (I read somewhere that you should become good friends with your butcher if plan on doing a lot of cooking. Hopefully I will make a new friend:-)
I would probably give it an 8/10 on my recipe rating scale. It was good but I found it needed a bit more flavor. I ran in and whipped up a small batch of the ingredients that were used in the marinade and zapped it in the microwave & used it as a sauce. Much better. I would make this again.
Happy Cooking Everyone:-)
