Gluten Free Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken

This has to be one of the easiest recipes out there!  I can whip this up from start to finish in about 20 minutes (after the Chicken is done marinating that is).  To grill the chicken breasts I used my handy-dandy Foreman Grill, but if you have an outdoor grill... even better.  Basically all you have to do is grill up the marinated chicken and then spoon some extra marinade over the cooked chicken and serve.

I served it up with some organic brown rice, but feel free to spice it up with seasoned steamed vegetables.  This one has a kick to it, so if you're not into hot and spicy, you may want to tone down the pepper flakes and chili powder.

  • 1/2 cup of Whole Grain Mustard (any kind, just make sure it's GF)
  • 1/2 cup of Honey
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
  • 3-4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

  1. Whisk all the ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Reserve about 4 tablespoons of sauce to glaze cooked chicken, and then pour the remaining honey-mustard mixture over the chicken.  Toss it up until completely coated and then cover with plastic wrap and let marinade for 30 minutes at room temperature.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Grill the chicken for about 7 minutes per side, or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. 
  4. Pour the reserve honey-mustard sauce over chicken and let rest under foil covering for about 5 minutes.
  5. Serve with your favorite side and chow down!
