Serving size: 4
Calories per serving: 121
1 tablespoons vinegar, like cider, balsamic, or red wine
2 teaspoons dried herbs, like thyme, oregano, rosemary, or crumbled bay leaves
1 tablespoons mustard, whole grain or dijon
1 teaspoon garlic or onion powder, optional
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, each about 6 ounces
Thaw in the refrigerator overnight, under cold, running water, or in the microwave at 30 percent power for 1 minute at a time.
Heat a grill or grill pan. When the grill is hot, place the chicken on the grill and cook for about 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. You can also bake the thawed chicken in a 375 degree F oven for 15 minutes, or until cooked through.
Cook's Note: When using a meat thermometer to tell the temperature of a chicken, you should remove the protein from heat when the reading is approx 157°. When the meat is resting, the juices will move to the center of the piece and finish the rest of the cooking. This principle is called "carryover cooking."
