With maple dijon flavour combo already on my mind with the maple dijon roasted asparagus I was thinking about some grilled chicken using the same flavours. During the summer, one of my favourite quick, easy and tasty meals is to simply marinate some chicken breasts and then throw them on the grill. Add some sides like the asparagus and a salad and you have a nice, flavourful light meal. This maple dijon chicken is as easy as marinating the chicken in the maple and dijon mustard and then grilling it up. I served the chicken with some of the maple dijon vinaigrette left over from the maple dijon roasted asparagus to get even more of that maple dijon flavour combo including a nice hit of the grainy mustard. Note: Asparagus also grills up well so feel free to grill the asparagus rather than roasting it in the oven.
