Yogurt Dijon Marinated Chicken

I totally stole this idea from Chris at Nibble Me This (Sorry, Chris!!).  He commented on one of my posts the other day that one of my recipes gave him an idea for a yogurt/mustard marinade for chicken.  When I read that, I was like... OH YEAH, that's a fantastic idea!  Now, the sad thing is, I'm 100% certain that Chris would make an even meaner, tastier marinade...but I'm pretty happy with mine.  It is simple, it is flavorful, and it is oh, so moist!  Could it have been even better?  Maybe?  Maybe not?

I'll let you decide....

Yogurt Dijon Marinated Chicken
Created by Jenn's Food Journey
- Serves 2 -
Printable Recipe
5oz plain Greek yogurt
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons hot sauce
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Mix together all the ingredients except the chicken.  Rinse chicken and pat dry with a paper towel.  Place chicken in a shallow dish or resealable bag and pour the marinade over it.  Cover/seal and place in refrigerator for 4-8 hours (I had mine marinating all day when I was at work).

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Remove chicken from bag or dish and discard marinade.  Place chicken directly over the fire and grill for 6-10 minutes per side or until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160-165 degrees F.  Remove from gill and allow to rest for 3-5 minutes.  Enjoy!

You and Chris bouncing ideas off one another will kick grilling up several notches and we all get to benefit from it.

And once again, I have all the ingredients for this! And now I'm sitting here, wondering if I ever have an original idea for dinner, or if all of them come from my blogging buddies!!♥

Chris is always coming up with awesome marinades and so are you! I think this chicken looks and sounds amazing.

I love mustard, and the tanginess of yogurt must have complemented it - and the chicken - perfectly! Inspired on both your parts ... :)
