Zesty Grilled Chicken with Thyme

Thyme

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon-type mustard

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme (about 1/4 teaspoon)

  • 1 teaspoon horseradish (optional)

Directions

Combine all the ingredients except chicken in a bowl or container large enough to accommodate the chicken breasts. Coat the chicken breasts with the mixture and let stand at least 15 minutes. Grill (or broil) approximately five minutes per side, or until chicken is cooked through. Try substituting fresh oregano for the thyme. Or, if you like a bit of crust, roll in unseasoned bread crumbs before grilling. Or sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
