Directions

  • 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.

The first bite of the chicken at the narrow end of the breast had me thinking the marinade was a bit overbearing but I admit I tend to be a non-marinade guy. However as I took a couple more bites I was treated to a wonderfully moist chicken breast where the subtle sweetness of the marinade complemented the chicken perfectly. I will definitely make this again but I ll make sure the chicken breasts are reasonably medium-thick so the marinade does not overpower the taste of the chicken. Read More

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 was ok but not fantastic. Prob won t make it again. Read More

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

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 nothing really stood out above the other components. We didn't discern the Dijon mustard or the garlic either. Not that this is bad mind you. I marinated a portobello mushroom cap and tomato slices grilling them along with the chicken and this sauce was compatible with those items as well. The chicken was very juicy but I attribute that more to the manner of cooking than to a virtue of this particular recipe. Very good. Not exactly rock-your-world-can't-wait-to-have-it-again-five-stars good but I could see myself possibly making it sometime in the future. Read More

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 flavorful chicken breasts that I've ever eaten in my life. They nearly melted in my mouth. I should have taken a photo but they were eaten too fast to get one. Make this chicken you won't be sorry! Read More

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. Read More

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 brine so no need to add more. It's funny to see all the reviews attributing moist chicken to the marinade....raw chicken is moist even without a marinade. It is overcooking that results in dry chicken. So use this marinade for a nice lemony chicken and make sure not to overcook it if you want it moist:) Read More

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 great tangy taste. My hubby even at it the next day and he usually hates leftovers. I'll be making this again thanks. Read More

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 they devoured every single piece of the chicken. For convenience we made double batches of marinade added the chicken as directed and froze the filled bags flat on a cookie sheet. Thanks for an excellent recipe! Read More
