Garlic Mustard Chicken: An easy chicken marinade recipe made with garlic, mustard and olive oil. Whole30 and Paleo Dinner Idea.
Garlic Mustard Chicken
If there is one thing I never get tired of, it is grilled chicken. We don’t have any indoor grills, so I have to get my fill of it in the summertime when we have the outdoor grill at our fingertips! Today I have another super easy chicken marinade for you. Remember this marinade? Although that marinade is one of our all-time favorites, one of our new favorites is this Garlic Mustard Chicken.
As I’ve mentioned before, we’ve been trying to eat a little healthier around here. I know….you’d never guess by the look of the desserts we’ve been sharing around here:) But really, most of the time, we try to eat food that is good for us. When a friend told me in passing about a marinade that their family liked, my ears perked up. They mentioned only three ingredients.
Spicy Brown Mustard
And all three were on our “approved” eating list! I could hardly wait to try this simple sugar-free marinade!
It did not disappoint. We used equal amounts of mustard and olive oil, then added in two teaspoons of minced garlic. Let this marinate at least for 6 hours, but it is best if you marinate it overnight. The olive oil makes the chicken tender, and the mustard gives it the perfect flavor.
We tried both regular yellow mustard and spicy brown mustard, and definitely preferred the spicy brown mustard. I don’t really care for it as a condiment, so I was hesitant, but it was amazing on the chicken.
We serve this chicken with grilled vegetables. And if there are leftovers? Slice it up and put it on a salad the next day. It really is the perfect lunch.
