Tonights meal is a variation on several lemon chicken recipes that I have either tasted or seen elsewhere. Always wishing to mix things up a little I threw in some country dijon mustard to give it a little texture.
- 1 large chicken breast
- assorted vegetables
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon country dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon oven roasted garlic
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Pinch of cumin
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Begin by combining the marinade ingredients in a bowl. Nothing fancy here, Just throw them all in together, mix them up well and you're done!
Put aside a few tablespoons of the marinade in a separate dish.
Next take a chicken breast or two, clean and trim as necessary before flattening them a little with a tenderizer.
Place the chicken in the bowl containing the marinade and ensure that it is well coated then put it in the refrigerator until ready to cook.
Preheat your grill.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and place on the preheated grill basting the remaining marinade over the chicken for the first few minutes of cooking.
Continue cooking for about 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until the juices run clear turning occasionally to ensure even cooking.
While the chicken is cooking place a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet or wok and stir-fry some pre-cut vegetables of your choosing.
Remove chicken from the grill and plate along with the stir-fried vegetables. Remember the marinade we set aside at the beginning? Drizzle this lightly over the cooked chicken and veggies for a finishing touch. That's it done! Hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
Till next time, eat well!
