  1. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate.
  2. Whisk mustard, garlic, tarragon, honey, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Pat chicken breasts dry with a paper towel; coat one side of each breast with mustard sauce.
  3. Place chicken, coated side down, on grill; cover with remaining sauce and close grill lid. Turn chicken over after 10 minutes. Cook chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Delicious and so easy to put together! I know the submitter intended this to be more of a grilling sauce however I decided to put everything into a ziploc bag to marinate all day. The result was moist, sweet and tangy grilled chicken. The best part is this require no oil so it's low in fat as well.

This has a subtle mustard flavor that is barely detectable. Perhaps marinading for an hour or two would help. The first time I made this, my husband thought it was really good. The second time I made it he said, "please, don't ever make this again." I thought it tasted the same both times.

We really enjoyed this simple but tasty recipe that I made exactly as written (although the amount of garlic was intimidating!). Half of the family thought the garlic was a little too strong, the other half thought it had just a tad too much of mustard. But everyone would love to have it again, just as it is written.

Used about 4 T of fresh tarragon from the garden, and it turned out awesome. Did leave marinating at room temp about 30 min. This is my new go-to last minute grilled chicken recipe.

Delicious! I used thighs instead becaused they have more flavor and are more moist. I will be making it again.

This certainly is easy to prepare, but had a little too much dijon mustard for our tastes.

Followed the recipe and the meal turned out fantastic. It was easy to make and flavorful. A wonderful summer dinner.

I loved this! I like the flavor of dijon and tarragon anyway. I didn't really taste the dijon at all, maybe a little more next time. My only complaint is the sauce is a little runny and the chicken was a little dry by the time it was done. Maybe thicken the sauce a little for the grill for the next time or pan fry with the sauce might work better. I'll tweak the next time, full of flavor though! Thanks for the recipe.
