Grilled chicken is one of the easiest things to make, and it’s so wonderfully versatile. You can marinate it or coat it with whatever ingredient you like depending on your mood of the day.
One day, I was in a Dijon mustard mood.
I have no shame in saying that I am a mustard snob. I absolutely hate French’s mustard because once you go Dijon, you never go back.
The taste is strong yet subtle, if that makes any sense at all. It makes the simplest meal taste like it was fit for a king.
Barbecue season is around the corner, so these little guys are a perfect quick dinner for the family! Serve it with salad for a light meal, or with my eggplant fries and salad for a perfect meal.
For 4 people (and some leftovers), you will need:
1 pound of boneless chicken thighs
1/4 cup Dijon mustard (regular and a l’ancienne preferably)
Salt and pepper
Flatten your chicken thighs.
Coat your chicken thighs with the mustard. You don’t want to drown them in mustard, but you do want to make sure that each piece is nice and covered in Dijon goodness.
Season with salt and pepper and put in a bowl.
Turn your grill on!
Once it is heated and ready, put the thighs on the grill and cook for about 5 minutes of each side (it may be more, but I don’t want you to overcook it! Thighs are more difficult to estimate a clear cooking time).
Make sure your chicken is not pink when you cut through it and you’ll be fine.
Once they are cooked, remove them from the grill and serve them immediately.
