When we were newlyweds, Bryan and I cooked through an early 90s Williams Sonoma grilling book. A Mustard-Grilled Chicken recipe was included. Over the years I have tweaked the original recipe to make it easier and less expensive to prepare.

It is absolutely delicious, particularly so if you have time to marinade the chicken breast for several hours. Serve it with brown rice pilaf, steamed veggies, and a salad for a yummy, healthy meal.

Mustard-Grilled Chicken

1/3 cup Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/4 cup neutral cooking oil
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast

Combine mustard, cayenne, and vinegar. Whisk together as you add oil in a thin stream. Place in a large zip-top bag. Add chicken and seal bag. Massage chicken well to distribute marinade. Place in a container in the frig for several hours. Cook over a hot grill.

    Chicken recipe looks delicious! And I’ve never tried using grapeseed oil before… I learned something new!

    I don’t know if I have a recipe. I don’t use them very often except for guidelines. I am a “a little of this and that” kind of girl! We grill A LOT, but hey we are Californians! I also, just choose to use whole ingriendients when possible. Brown rice, whole wheat tortillas, real cheese and butter (as opposed to Cheeze Whiz and margarine!). I make my own whole grain dinner rolls. Anyway you get the idea. My goal is to use less salt in my cooking though. I second grape seed oil. Wonderful for sauteing too.

  6. Grape seed oil is new to me, too.

    Your chicken recipe sounds simple and good. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  7. i love recipe swaps, thanks for hosting a healthy one!!

    i couldn’t decide between the carrot/cabbage slaw or the whole grain waffles with oats, but since you have a waffle one already, went with a veggie packed salad.
