Cook Time

4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 1 tablespoon mustard cream)

The pronounced lemon-pine character of rosemary goes well with olive oil and Dijon mustard, giving this grilled chicken a rustic Mediterranean flair.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill.

Step 2

Combine 1 teaspoon mustard, oil, and next 3 ingredients in a small bowl; brush evenly over chicken. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes on each side or until done.

Step 3

While chicken grills, combine 1 tablespoon mustard, mayonnaise, and 1 tablespoon water in a bowl. Serve mustard cream with grilled chicken. Garnish with rosemary sprigs, if desired.

This was really good.  Chicken took a few minutes longer.  Cream was really good on it.  Served with asparagus, which was also good with the cream

I really liked the combination of the rosemary and dijon flavours for the marinade. I have used the marinade a number of times for chicken and salmon on the George Foreman grill, and it always yields juicy, flavourful results! The sauce was pretty good too, but it felt a little like eating a mouthful of mayo in every bite. Maybe if the sauce was warmed, it would feel less like eating a condiment, and more like a sauce.

Very subtle flavors and doesn't make a lot of sauce; double recipe at least...still nice.

This is a great quick recipe, the family loved it. I did substitute fresh dill for the rosemary.

Yum!! So easy to make and delicious. Note - I doubled the sauce to brush on the chicken for broiling, otherwise there just is not enough (I brushed 6 chicken strips with the double portion)

I made this for family who were visiting, and everyone thought it was a hit. This was quick and simple. The sauce was simple. I made extra of everything and had great leftovers for lunch at work.

I have made this twice, now. Both times it has been excellent! It has a good tangy flavor, and is nice and juicy. I plan to make this much more.
