Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Cutlets
The easiest and most flavorful grilled chicken, which you can keep around to add to salads, quesadillas, chopped over pasta or served straight up with a side of grains or veggies!
- 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup low-sodium Tamari
- 1/3 cup plain yogurt
- 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
- Set a large ziplock bag upright and add dijon mustard, honey, tamari and yogurt. Whisk to mostly combine.
- Slice chicken breasts into three pieces each. Spread a large piece of saran wrap (approximately 2 feet long) on the counter and add chicken breast pieces. Top with another piece of saran the same size. Use a meat mallet or other blunt heavy object (get creative, lol) to thin the breasts to approximately 3/4" cutlets. Add cutlets to your ziplock bag and tightly seal, removing excess air.
- Shake bag to evenly distribute marinade over the cutlets. Wipe a soapy sponge over the ziplock to make sure it doesn't have any chicken bacteria, then refrigerate for at least three hours and up to 24 hours.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with nonstick parchment paper. Heat a nonstick grill pan or cast-iron pan to high heat (turn on any air vent you have). If you don't have a nonstick surface, coat with 1 teaspoon oil. Test to see if surface is hot enough by adding a splash of water. If it sizzles, it's ready.
- Use tongs to pull chicken pieces out of the ziplock, shaking off excess marinate. Add as many chicken pieces as possible to the pan, while leaving at least 1/2 inch between each.
- Grill chicken for approximately 4-5 minutes, or until it has nice golden brown grill marks. Flip and repeat--this side should take a little less time.
- Cut into chicken to make sure it's cooked all the way through. If not, add chicken to the prepared baking sheet and place in the oven for 5 minutes. Allow to rest 10 minutes before serving. Repeat with any remaining chicken cutlets.
- Cutlets will keep in the refrigerator tightly sealed up to 4 days, if the chicken was fresh upon purchase.
