  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together Dijon mustard, honey, olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper.
  2. Place the chicken breasts in a shallow dish and pour the honey mustard marinade over them. Make sure the chicken is evenly coated. Allow the chicken to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours for maximum flavor.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grates to prevent sticking.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off. Reserve the marinade for basting.
  5. Grill the chicken breasts for about 6-7 minutes per side, or until they reach an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C). Baste the chicken with the reserved marinade during grilling.
  6. Once cooked, transfer the grilled chicken to a platter and let it rest for a few minutes.
  7. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve hot.
