I’ve never been much of a mustard fan on burgers and whatnot, but I’ve always wanted to try my hand at a dijon-based marinade. Dijon just sounds lovely, and looks lovely, so why wouldn’t it taste lovely too? (It does, for the record.) I played around with flavours for this simple recipe that’s quick to whip up but tastes absolutely wonderful.
Ingredients (for 4 servings):
- 4 breasts of chicken
- 1/4 cup of dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 1/4 cup of olive oil
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 onion
- Fresh thyme
- Black pepper
- Mix dijon mustard and honey in a bowl.
- Add olive oil and crushed garlic to pan.
- Chop onion into slivers and saute for 1-2 minutes in pan on medium heat.
- Add chicken to pan and coat both sides with dijon/honey mixture.
- Cook chicken for about 7 minutes until there is no pink inside.
- Add thyme to pan shortly before taking chicken and onions out to serve.
The whole process takes less than half an hour – but it doesn’t taste like a quickie dinner. I paired the chicken with smashed potatoes and a simple arugula salad with parmesan shavings and balsamic dressing. So easy, so good! And similar ingredients for all three makes the whole thing extra simple. Happy cooking!
