  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the Marinade:
    • In a bowl, whisk together the Dijon mustard, honey, olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. This combination will create a flavorful and tenderizing marinade.
  2. Marinate the Chicken:
    • Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish.
    • Pour the marinade over the chicken, ensuring that each piece is well-coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for about 15-20 minutes. Marinating too long with this mixture may cause the chicken to become overly tenderized.
  3. Preheat the Grill:
    • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Make sure the grates are clean and lightly oiled to prevent sticking.
  4. Grill the Chicken:
    • Remove the chicken breasts from the marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off.
    • Place the chicken on the preheated grill. Cook for approximately 6-7 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C) and the chicken is no longer pink in the center.
    • To create beautiful grill marks, you can rotate the chicken breasts about halfway through the cooking time on each side.
  5. Glaze the Chicken:
    • During the last couple of minutes of grilling, brush each side of the chicken with a bit of extra honey mustard sauce from the marinade. This will create a delicious glaze.
  6. Rest and Serve:
    • Once the chicken is cooked through, transfer it to a clean plate.
    • Allow the grilled chicken to rest for a few minutes. This resting period helps to seal in the juices and keep the meat tender.
  7. Plate and Garnish:
    • Place the honey mustard grilled chicken on a serving platter.
    • For an extra touch, you can drizzle a little more honey mustard sauce on top or serve some on the side.
  8. Serve and Savor:
    • Serve the Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken with your favorite side dishes, such as grilled vegetables, coleslaw, or a fresh garden salad.
