Grilled Soy Mustard Chicken

I found this recipe for Soy and mustard grilled chicken on Crepes of Wrath. I don't know what happened. Usually, everything I try from this Blog turns out wonderful. The dijon, hoisin and soy sauce just weren't jiving for me.

It could be because Mrblocko flubbed on the cooking time and the meat got dried out. We ended up dipping the chicken in BBQ sauce. That seems like such a waste. We might as well have just put BBQ sauce on them in the first place. I'm just gonna chalk it up to "Ya can't win 'em all."

Don't get me wrong...this wasn't bad, it just wasn't gooood. We ate all of it after all. If it was completely gross we would have whipped out a box of mac n cheese. I think we've had so many good grilled dinners that we've gotten a bit spoiled when something doesn't turn out fantabulous.

Grilled Soy and Dijon Mustard Chicken from Crepes of Wrath
2 chicken breasts, pounded to an even thickness
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons white granulated sugar
juice of 1 lime

 Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk well to combine. Place chicken in a large bag and pour marinade in. Seal well and shake around a bit to coat  chicken. Place in fridge for as little as 30 min or as long as 12 hours. When ready to eat, take chicken out of bag and discard  marinade. Grill over med-high heat for 5-6 min on each side, til juices run clear and chicken is cooked through.
