Grilled Lemon-Mustard Chicken

This chicken has a super-easy marinade. Make it ahead of time and stick it in the freezer for a quick meal! It was so delicious and turned out so tender! Give it a try!


½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Tbs minced lemon zest
¼ cup dijon mustard
½ tsp EACH of the following chopped herbs: thyme, oregano and parsley
¾ tsp salt
¼ tsp coarsely cracked pepper

4 whole large skinless, boneless chicken breasts

lemon slices, parsley and fresh herbs for garnish


Combine marinade ingredients in a large freezer ziploc baggie. Mix well.

Add chicken breasts to baggie and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Remove chicken from marinade and grill 3 inches from heat for 6 to 8 minutes on each side.

Place on individual plates or on a platter surrounded by parsley sprigs, lemon slices and fresh herb leaves.
