Maple Dijon Grilled Chicken

Maple Dijon Grilled Chicken

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.

Love marinaded grilled chicken. Maple dijon--that's a flavor that I never would have thought of! But it sounds wonderful. I always worry about having my meat and vegetables have the same flavorings on them (unless it's a stir fry). Maybe this is something I shouldn't worry about! Thanks! (My word verification thing is "meal"...coincidence, or is it telling me to make this soon?)

I am a total honey dijon addict, which means I would probably be completely enamored with this. Beautiful pictures!

Love this recipe. 2nd time I added some balsamic vinegar and couple of minced garlic cloves...grilled on a maple plank on the BBQ. Cooking butt was kicked!

Looks really good. I just made something similar, this recipe had honey rather then maple. Next time I will have to try the maple.
Thanks:-)
