Ingredients for Grilled Chicken with Rosemary Mustard Cream Sauce


  • To make marinade: Combine 1 Tbsp. mustard, 2 Tbsp. yogurt and half of the lemon juice in a large bowl. Then add raw chicken and mix well. Let rest for 15-30 minutes.
  • After the chicken has sat in the marinade for a bit, grill chicken over medium, indirect heat, so it doesn’t dry out.
  • To make Rosemary Mustard Cream Sauce: While the chicken grills, mix chopped rosemary with remaining mustard, yogurt, and lemon juice. Add freshly ground pepper to taste.
  • Plate the chicken and spoon 3 Tbsp. of sauce over the top. Serve immediately.
