Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken
Boneless chicken breasts can get dry on the grill. For tender, juicy meat, we grill ours quickly over high heat, then brush them with a honey-mustard mixture. Sprinkle toasted almonds on top for added crunch. Toast the almonds in a dry skillet over medium heat, shaking occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes. This recipe can also be made in a grill pan over high heat.
3/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon leaves
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds), pounded 1/2 inch thick
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Combine mustard, honey, and cayenne in bowl. Transfer 1/2 cup mustard mixture to separate bowl and stir in sour cream and tarragon; set aside.
Pat chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Grill over hot fire until cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to platter, brush with remaining mustard mixture, and sprinkle with almonds.
Serve, passing sour cream mixture separately.
