grilling in the winter (I live in Texas)

Join us in all the fun:

One of the best parts of living in SE Texas is that we can grill out year round.  It was in the 30’s last week and now we are in the 60’s.  Tomorrow will be in the 70’s.  Gotta love Texas!!

A little sweet

We are HUGE fans of honey mustard anything.   I may have been known to judge restaurants by how much I like their honey mustard.  Needless to say this Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken has to be good.

To make the perfect honey mustard marinade I started with equal parts mustard (I used dijon) and honey.  Then I added in a little mayo for some extra creaminess, some olive oil, soy sauce (for a little bite) and some seasonings.    Before I knew it I had a sweet honey mustard marinade that I loved!

I let it marinade all day, and it was perfect.  If you needed to let it go overnight that would work as well.

Get to grilling

If you cannot grill outside right now (since it is winter and all) you could definately use a grill pan, or roast it in the oven as well.   The flavor will still come through.

If you are going to grill outside here a few tips.  Make sure to rub a little vegetable oil onto the grates before putting the chicken on them.  Also make sure the grill is on medium.  Since we are using boneless, skinless chicken breasts they will cook very quick and can dry out, so you don’t want to over cook them.  Third, when you remove the chicken from the marinade let it sit out for 10 minutes to take the chill off the chicken.  This help get a good sear on the chicken when you grill it, it will also let you get the sauce thickened up a bit as well before you start grilling.
