Jamie Deen’s Dijon Mustard and Rosemary-Grilled Chicken

The other day I saw Jamie Deen make this for dinner for his family. Its a kid-friendly recipe, which meant that even my one-year-old could eat it.

Ingredients for Jamie Deen’s Dijon Mustard and Rosemary-Grilled Chicken are:

6 portions of chicken breasts cut just above the bones (retain the bones for soup stock)
2-3 sprigs of fresh rosemary, leaves chopped up
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
4 cloves of garlic, minced
Juice of one lemon
2 lemons halved
Quarter cup olive oil + 1 tablespoon
Freshly cracked black pepper
Salt

IMG_6679Marinate the chicken for up to 3-4 hours. But if you don’t have time, just mix everything up and do it on the grill right away.

Here is what I did. I mixed all the ingredients (except the halved lemons) in a large bowl and marinated the chicken in it for two hours.

Then I heat my grill pan and brushed some olive oil on it. Wipe off any oil extra with paper towels.

IMG_6747When the grill pan is roaring hot, place the marinated chicken on it. This way the chicken won’t stick to the pan. Give the chicken about 6-7 minutes before you turn it. This way you will get the perfect grill marks too on your chicken. Each side needs about 6-7 minutes to cook through.

On the same grill pan, keep the halved lemons face down for about 3-4 minutes.

Jamie Deen placed the grilled chicken on a bed of fresh baby arugula and served for dinner.

I just squeezed the grilled lemons on the chicken and served.

That’s a quick dinner for you and your family. I am pleased to announce that LMN ate Jamie Deen’s grilled chicken too and quite liked it. I served the Dijon Mustard and Rosemary-Grilled Chicken with my Herb, Cheese & Garlic-Baked Cauliflower, some Grilled Portobello Mushrooms and Roasted Garlic.

Thank you, Jamie Deen and Food Network for being my inspiration last night.
