Don't judge a book by its cover

I know this isn't the prettiest looking chicken, but let me tell you, it has SO much flavor and is delicious! The secret ingredient is course ground mustard (the kind that has very large grains in it). It packs more flavor and adds a nice texture. This recipe is adapted from Kalyn's kitchen who has a great tutorial on grilling juicy chicken breasts, too. This recipe will surely become one of your favorites! 

Rosemary and mustard grilled chicken
8-10 boneless chicken breasts (I used tenders)
1/2 cup coarse ground mustard
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
2 tablespoons rosemary, finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground pepper

1 Clean and trim chicken. Cut slits crosswise down the length of each side. This is so that the marinade will flavor the meat better.

2 Prepare marinade and pour into large ziplock back. Place chicken into the ziplock back and mash around, covering all the chicken with the marinade. Let marinade 6 hours up to over night in the fridge.

3 When done marinating, grill chicken over medium heat until well browned. Time depends on how big your chicken pieces are. My tenders only took about 5 minutes each side, but breasts will take longer.

It's so hard to make chicken look good, though! It's a tricky beast! I just made a poached chicken with apricots and pineapples, it tastes SO yummy but it looks like death, so I won't post it :(
This recipe looks flavourful and easy: perfection!

mustard and rosemary work so well together! Have you ever tried a mustard sauce on Salmon? Awesome!
