I think you all know my feelings on sauces by this point - A sauce can make a fabulous dish, heavenly. A sauce can make a so-so dish, incredible. A sauce can make you laugh...it can make you dance...it can.........well, I love sauce, enough said.
I love to grill during the week, too. It's quick and simple. I always make sure the marinade or rub is simple and uses few ingredients. And of course, the sauce, the sauce must be simple, yet flavorful. This recipe is all of that.
Grilled Chicken with Rustic Mustard Sauce
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary, divided
salt and pepper
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 - 1 teaspoon horseradish (depends on the spiciness you want)
In a small bowl, mix together 2 teaspoons mustard, olive oil and 1 teaspoon rosemary. Rinse chicken and pat dry. Rub the mustard mixture over both sides of the chicken and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
Preheat grill to 400 degrees. Rub the grill grates with oil. Place the chicken directly over the fire and cook for 8-10 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked all the way through.
While the chicken is grilling, combine remaining Dijon (1T), remaining rosemary (1tsp), mayonnaise, and horseradish in a bowl. Stir until well combined. Serve with chicken. Enjoy!
