  • Total: 25 mins + 2h marinade
  • active: 20 mins

Ingredients (8)

  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for the grill
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, butterfly-shaped
  • 1 lime, cut into 4 wedges

Instructions

  1. Combine honey, mustard, measured olive oil, garlic, salt and black pepper to taste in a large plastic zip lock bag. Add the chicken, then seal and shake the bag to make sure the meat is well coated. Place in an ovenproof dish and refrigerate for 2 or up to 24 hours, turning the bag over several times.
  2. Prepare the grill over medium-high heat.
  3. Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade. Place chicken on a grill that has been oiled or coated with cooking spray. Cook until a nice crust forms on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes per side or until cooked through. Let the chicken rest on a serving platter for 10 minutes before slicing and with lime wedges.
