Grilled chicken with Dijon mustard marinade recipe
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon fresh chopped rosemary
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
- In a small bowl, combine the Dijon mustard, olive oil, garlic, rosemary, pepper and coriander. Mix well.
- Place the chicken breasts in a large, sealable plastic bag, seal it and pound them with a rolling pin or meat hammer, until they are at an even thickness of about 3/4-inch.
- Add the mustard mixture to a separate large, sealable plastic bag. Add the chicken to the bag, seal it, and massage it gently so the mixture coats the chicken.
- Refrigerate the chicken for about an hour.
- Place the chicken on a clean, oiled grill over medium-high heat. Cook about 3 minutes on each side or until done. The FDA states a minimum safe internal temperature for chicken is 165 degrees F. as measured by a meat thermometer.
