Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Breasts


I wanted a quick and simple chicken marinade with ingredients I had on hand for dinner. I found the perfect recipe at Simply Scratch. It took minutes to make the marinade/sauce and it tasted fantastic. I marinated the chicken for 3 hours before cooking it up in my grill pan. I served the chicken with the remaining sauce and we all liked it, including my daughter’s friend, who is very picky. My son didn’t like the sauce but thought the chicken was great without it… I didn’t tell him it had marinated in the sauce ☺.

Combine the mustard, honey, lemon juice, paprika, cayenne pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes together in a small bowl. Remove 3 tablespoons of the sauce and reserve it for later.

Place the chicken breasts into a shallow pan. Pour the marinade onto the chicken breasts then toss to coat evenly. Cover with saran wrap and place into the refrigerator to marinate for 2-3 hours.

Heat a grill pan coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Place the chicken into the hot grill pan and cook for 6-7 minutes; flip and continue to cook for 6-7 minutes, or until cooked through. Let the chicken rest on a cutting board for a few minutes before serving. Drizzle the sauce over the chicken or serve on the side. Enjoy.
