I’m not really sure what’s more frustrating, the fact that I get the same (unprepared) answer every single week, or the fact that I continue to call him and expect a different answer.
I mean, honestly, I’ve known the guy for a LONG time, I know what he’s going to say, so why even call? He’d say that I just want to hear his voice.
Ok, maybe. He’s a police officer, what can I say? I may or may not just call occasionally to make sure he’s ok. #overprotective
Anyway, this week, he threw me a curve ball. He said NOT to buy chicken.
Um, excuse me?
Apparently, he’s sick of it. But here’s the thing. I had a new chicken recipe that I really wanted to try.
So, I bought chicken. Whoops.
And, I loved the recipe. I think you will, too. It has three things going for it: one, it’s super quick. Two, it’s super easy. And three, it’s full of sweet, honey-mustard flavor. My husband loved it (even though he’s SICK of chicken) and my girls loved it, too. I served it with a little spinach and strawberry salad and we had ourselves a perfectly lovely little meal. Another bonus? No oven. It’s perfect for these hot summer evenings!
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons fresh chives
1 and 1/2 Tablespoon olive oil
4 chicken breasts (we buy two large breasts from the butcher counter and cut them in half)
Prepare grill. Wash chicken breasts and sprinkle with a generous application of salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, whisk together honey, mustard and chives. Slowly drizzle olive oil into mixture, whisking continuously to combine. Set aside.
Place chicken breasts on grill. Cook for 6 minutes, then flip. Cook for another 6 minutes. Brush with honey Dijon mixture, and flip. Coat other side with honey mustard. Remove from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Drizzle with extra honey mustard if desired.
