  • 1/3 cup fresh mint, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped fine
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, stemmed, seeded and chopped fine
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp honey



Whisk together the mint, 1/4 cup olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper.

Put chicken breasts in a sealable bag. Add the marinade.

Turn to coat the chicken and refrigerate for an hour.

Melt butter with 2 Tbsp of olive oil over medium heat.

Add onion and jalapeno and cook 4 minutes or until the onion is translucent.

Remove from heat and stir in the mustard and honey.

Grill breasts over medium high for 8 minutes, turning once.

Baste the chicken with the mustard sauce and continue grilling 5 more minutes or until the juice runs clear.

Tip: Keep the grill lid closed as much as possible to promote quick and even cooking and reduce flare ups.
