Sunny Day Chicken

The honey-mustard glaze gives this grilled chicken a pretty yellowish hue and extra cancer-fighting antioxidants. Just don't serve honey to children younger than 12 months because of the risk of infant botulism, a life-threatening disease.

Serves:
6

Prep Time:
15 minutes

Cooking Time:
20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 Tbs. honey
  • 4 Tbs. spicy mustard
  • 1 tsp. grated lemon peel
  • 2 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Instructions:

Step 1: Heat the grill until the coals turn gray and there are no longer strong flames, 35 to 45 minutes.

Step 2: Meanwhile, combine honey, mustard, lemon peel, soy sauce, and garlic, and mix well. Reserve a few tablespoons of the sauce. Add chicken and marinate in the refrigerator until coals are ready.

Step 3: Cook chicken 5 to 6 minutes per side. Brush with the reserved sauce, and continue cooking for an additional 3 to 4 minutes per side, until chicken registers 170°F on a meat thermometer.
