Easy Grilled Honey-Dijon Chicken from The Food Network (June 8, 2010)

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:-)


Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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:-)
