  • 4 pieces of boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
  • Juice of 1 lemon (2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Create your Honey Mustard marinade by combining the lemon juice, olive oil, honey and mustard in a bowl and mixing well.

Reserve about 1/4 cup of the sauce for later.

Wash your chicken breasts and arrange them in a tray or ziplock bag and pour the Honey Mustard sauce over top.

Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 12 hours.

Slice the chicken length-wise into 1/2″ wide pieces.  Drizzle some olive oil over your grill pan and bring it to a medium-high heat.  Cook chicken for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until done.

Pour extra Honey Mustard into small cups and dunk the chicken for an extra boost of flavor.
