chicken breasts, boneless or bone-in
cloves fresh garlic, minced
tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
Combine all ingredients except the chicken on a medium sized non-reactive bowl. Whisk until well mixed.
Add chicken to a gallon sized zip top bag. Pour the marinade on top and seal the bag.
Let chill in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Grill until cooked through, about 5-7 minutes per side, basting periodically.
Chicken will be done when juices run clear.
There are no little people hanging on my leg as I try to flip chicken or burgers. There is no cranky mommy telling anyone to stop being so loud because we're outside. And I can give them a few pushes on the swing before I need to attend to something on the grill.
I also really enjoy the lack of mess associated with cooking outdoors. There aren't tons of pots and pans to wash or splatters on the stove to wipe up. I like to marinate my meats in zip-top bags so I can toss it when it's done instead of worrying about cleaning up raw meat juices.
Lemon chicken is a popular choice for grilled chicken. This version has some additional flavor from honey, garlic, and parsley.
There’s nothing better on a warm Spring or Summer day than firing up the grill and eating perfectly grilled chicken. Even though it’s hotter than Hades in Arizona in the summer, dinners coming from the grill are still the best way to celebrate the season of swimming. It’s a great alternative to heating the house that we are so desperately trying to keep cool (hello, $400 air conditioning bill) plus truth be told – everything tastes better cooked on a grill.
This Lemon Honey Dijon Grilled Chicken is so juicy and full of intense flavor. It’s perfect for the ultimate summer BBQ.
This Lemon Honey Dijon Grilled Chicken recipe is a foolproof marinade that is made with olive oil, fresh lemon juice, dijon mustard, fresh garlic, red pepper flakes, fresh parsley, and a bit of honey to give it a touch of sweetness. It’s so good that you will be licking your fingers AND the plate.
It’s all about the marinade! It’s the marinade that gives grilled chicken the out-of-this-world flavor, plus it seals in the juices. We don’t want to end up with dry chicken that tastes like cardboard. No, thank you! Rather, we want juicy chicken that bursts with flavor and keeps you coming back for more.
It is a snap to make and can be made ahead of time. It needs to marinate for at least 2 hours – or if time is on your hands, marinating it overnight really locks in the flavors because like most things in life, it only gets better with time. To ensure even cooking on the grill, use thinly sliced chicken breasts as they work brilliantly (you can find them in the store already cut for you which is way more convenient than trying to butterfly a chicken breast yourself).
This recipe originally appeared on Catz in September of 2011. While the text of the post has remained the same, the recipe itself has been remade, rephotographed, and updated. You can certainly still use chicken breast for this delectable, easy meal, but we would recommend using chicken thighs, which are typically more flavorful and a little more forgiving on the grill.

PS &ndash if you have leftovers, use them to make sandwiches for lunch with arugula and dijon. Very tasty!
I have a confession to make. I occasionally rip cooking pages out of magazines when I&rsquom waiting around in various appointment-type places. There, I said it! I know a lot of us do it when we&rsquore waiting to get our teeth cleaned or whatever, but it&rsquos not something that&rsquos really talked about and I know I always feel very guilty afterwards! But thanks to my page-stealing fetish, I found this fantastic recipe for grilled honey lemon chicken!
I don&rsquot exactly remember where I was when I found this recipe, but I was bored and was skimming through a magazine. It wasn&rsquot a cooking magazine, but it had a bunch of great recipes in the back to try out and one of them was this honey lemon chicken recipe by former Bachelor contestant Jake Pavelka. I have never watched any of those shows, so my only opinion of him is he created one flavorful chicken dish. Oddly enough, I can&rsquot find the recipe online so I&rsquom glad I tore it out of the magazine I was reading.
This recipe is super simple and the flavor just pops on your taste buds. We&rsquove got some classic ingredients here: lemons, honey (we use Desert Creek&rsquos raw Texas honey because, hey, Subscribe & Save!), fresh oregano, dijon mustard (Grey Poupon, because, duh, and also, Costco two-packs!), garlic, and extra virgin olive oil &ndash a great combination!
In a bowl, mix together the lemon juice and zest, olive oil, oregano, mustard, onion, honey, garlic, and salt and pepper. Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade for basting. Add your chicken to the bowl and let it soak for at least 30 minutes&hellip(we&rsquove done it overnight as well).
When your chicken has finished marinating, fire up that grill to medium high heat. Place the chicken on the grill and cook it while basting with the reserved marinade. While you&rsquore grilling the chicken, take some lemon slices and lightly grill them, too.
When the chicken is finished, drizzle with honey and garnish with the pretty grilled lemon wedges. I can&rsquot tell you how easy this whole meal is &ndash Josh and I were amazed with the amount of flavor we got in each bite. It&rsquos a summer grilling favorite now that I think we will make again and again.
To start this easy recipe, get out either a medium-sized mixing bowl or a gallon-sized ziploc bag.
Then, add in the Dijon mustard, honey, olive oil, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, and the fresh chopped parsley to the bowl or bag and mixed everything up until they are fully combined to create the marinade.
Trim your chicken breast or tenderloins the way you like and then place them in either the bag or bowl containing the marinade.
Let the chicken sit and marinate for 4-8 hours in the fridge.
Once the chicken has had time to marinade, heat the grill to medium heat.
After the grill has reached temperature, place the chicken on the grill and cook on both sides for 4 minutes or until the juices run clear. Then just simply remove them from the grill and get ready to serve with the sides you have prepared.
All that is left to do is combine the yellow mustard and honey in a small bowl and combine them completely. Then, use the honey mustard sauce to drizzle over top of the chicken and then serve!
