There's something about the rustic nature of grain mustard and the earthy flavor of maple that seem right at home with the smokiness of the grill. I've never seen a chicken so happy!
Go Get This Stuff
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper, per taste
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Then Do This
  1. Prepare a grill for two-zone cooking with medium-high heat. Clean and oil cooking grate.
  2. Pat chicken dry with paper towels and lightly brush both sides with olive oil. Season both sides with salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine remaining ingredients and heat over a medium heat until well mixed and slightly warm. Reduce heat and and keep warm over low heat.
  4. Place chicken directly over flame and sear for 2-3 minutes per side or until slightly browned and grill marks are prevalent.
  5. Move chicken to cooler side of the grill and brush with the maple mustard sauce. Close lid and allow to cook for 5 minutes. Flip chicken and brush again with the sauce. Close lid and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  6. Continue this process until an instant-read meat thermometer registers 160°F (70°C).
  7. Remove chicken from grill brush one more time with the sauce. Cover with foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
