Mustard-Lime Chicken

A tangy, kid-friendly recipe that's perfect for grilling outdoors. Try serving it with a light salad on the side.

Deliver Ingredients


  • ½ cup fresh lime juice
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts


Combine the lime juice, cilantro, mustard, olive oil, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a food processor. Pulse until ingredients are well combined. 

Place the chickens in a 7-by-11-inch Pyrex baking dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, cover with foil, and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or up to 6 hours. 

Heat a grill and cook chicken for 5-7 minutes per side until browned and cooked in the center. Serve and enjoy. 

Mustard Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Mustard Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
