Dijon Lemon Grilled Chicken

Nevine Abaza

"I wanted a new chicken recipe today, and my mum loves mustard chicken, so I came up with this recipe and it turned out great! Next time I'm going to double the quantity and coat the chicken with 1/2 the marinade. The 2nd half I will heat and serve as a side sauce to the chicken."

  • Ready In

  1. Mix olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, mustard seeds, honey, black pepper, and allspice together in a bowl.
  2. Cut small slits in a crosswise-pattern in each chicken breast to help the mustard marinade soak into the chicken. Add chicken to the mustard marinade; toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 hours.
  3. Remove chicken from marinade and sprinkle with salt. Discard the leftover marinade.
  4. Lightly oil a grill pan and place over medium-high heat.
  5. Cook chicken in the grill pan until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 7 minutes per side.

So easy and so yummy! I only marinated them for 4 hours and they were still great.

It was ok... Just ok. Won't bother to make this particular recipe again. Just my opinion & my tastebuds

Followed it exactly, wonderful!

I added fresh Rosemary and a 1/4 cup of apple vinegar to reduce the sweetness and bring out the rosemary. Very nice!

It was amazing. I didn't have a grill so I baked it. I let it marinade over night instead and it was amazing had I been able to grill it I'm sure there would have been even more amazing flavors....

This was a great starting base. I adjusted for ingredients I had in the house and serves it with chili garlic sautéed red Cabage and zucchini. I also used a just spicy brown mustard. We will be ...

We loved this recipe. Perfect balance of sweet and mustard. Also added a couple of smashed garlic cloves. I will definitely make this again.
