Amy’s Grilled Chicken Breasts


4 chicken breast halves
1 without skin
2 t dijon mustard
3 1/2 T white wine vinegar
2 t garlic minced
2 t honey
1 1/3 T fresh thyme
1/3 t coarse salt
1 1/3 ds red pepper flakes
1 T olive oil
4 sprigs fresh thyme


Place the chicken breasts within a folded piece of plastic wrap; slightly flatten upper portion of each breast with the broad side of a chef’s knife to promote even grilling.
Place breasts in a shallow glass or ceramic dish.
Place mustard, vinegar, garlic, honey, thyme, salt and pepper flakes in a small bowl; stir with fork to combine.
Add oil a little at a time and whisk to combine marinade.
Pour marinade over breasts.
Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator, turning once or twice in marinade, for at least 2 hours, or up to 4 hours. Remove breasts from marinade, scraping any bits clinging to chicken back into the shallow dish.
Transfer all marinade to small saucepan and bring to a boil; reserve.
Lightly grease grill rack with cooking spray.
Place breasts on grill.
Cook covered with lid, basting frequently with marinade, until tender, approximately 5 to 6 minutes on each side.
