Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken

It has been really REALLY hot out here this past week. My favorite thing to eat when it is hot out (or any time of the year really) is grilled chicken. This honey mustard marinade and sauce that we added made it SO juicy and tangy with a hint of sweetness. I wish we would have cooked more for leftovers!


1/2 c. whole grain mustard (or stone ground)
1/2 c. honey
1/2 lemon, juiced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. paprika
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp. cayenne
4 chicken breasts

Mix the mustard, honey, lemon juice, minced garlic and spices together with a whisk. Reserve a few tablespoons worth to add to the chicken later. Place the four boneless skinless chicken breasts in a large Ziplock bag with the rest of the  marinade. Marinade the chicken for at least 20 minutes, flipping over every five minutes or so. Preheat the grill (around 350 if you are using propane). Grill the chicken for 6-7 minutes on each side. Make sure to cut into one of the pieces to make sure it isn't pink in the middle anymore. Spoon the remaining sauce on top of the chicken.

(Makes 4 servings, 5 WW points per serving)
