The pronounced lemon-pine character of rosemary goes well with olive oil and Dijon mustard, giving this grilled chicken a rustic Mediterranean flair.
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon whole-grain Dijon mustard, divided
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
1 tablespoon water
Rosemary sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
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.
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.

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.
