Directions

  1. Mix canola oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, honey, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, Italian herb seasoning, salt, and black pepper in a bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag. Place chicken breasts into the bag, seal, and squeeze bag with your fingers several times to coat chicken with marinade. Place a second resealable bag over the first and seal to prevent leaks. Refrigerate chicken for 2 to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove chicken breasts from bag; discard used marinade. Cook chicken on the preheated grill until the center is no longer pink and the juices run clear, 7 to 8 minutes per side.

This was a very simple recipe. I made it in the oven for ease as the others said it came out well. My husband and I agreed that the lemon flavor conflicted with the Italian seasoning. The dish w...

Very nice. I followed the recipe exactly, except I baked the chicken in the sauce instead of grilling it. Everyone loved it!

Respectably good marinade. All the ingredients played quite well together. The honey could barely be tasted, and didn't contribute much sweetness, but helped to carmelize the outside. In fact, ...

I followed the recipe exactly except that I used stone ground mustard and marinated for 24 hours. We grilled for 8 minutes on one side and 7 on the other. These were the most tender, juicy and f...

Delicious! I used olive oil instead of canola. Also baked it in the oven at 425 for 20 minutes. Wonderful lemon flavor and very moist.

This is a great recipe. I've made it a few times, and found I prefer to cut the Italian seasoning in half, and skip the salt. The chicken breasts I buy are usually already injected with a salt b...

Love it! Easy and it uses things you have on hand in the house. I subbed maple syrup for honey because I didn't have any honey but it was still awesome. Made the chicken moist and gave it a gre...

So good!! I made the marinade and baked it in the oven. This was some of the most delicious, tender chicken ever! I’ll definitely be adding this recipe to my regular rotation.

We multiplied this recipe by 10 for a dinner we held for our daughter's college swim team (40 of them). Despite the fact that there was also smoked pork tenderloin and pasta with homemade sauce,...
