Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken with Georgia Pecans

  • From Georgia Pecan Commission
  • Yields 4 Servings


    • 3/4 cup chopped Georgia Pecans
    • 3 tablespoons honey
    • 2-1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 5 ounces each)


In small bowl, combine pecans, honey, and mustard. Place chicken and pecan mixture in re-sealable plastic bag and shake gently to coat chicken with mixture. Marinate 5 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Transfer chicken to small baking dish and partially bake 15 minutes. Pour pan juices from chicken into a small saucepan. Prepare a hot charcoal fire or preheat a gas grill. While grill is heating, boil pan juices briefly until thickened and syrupy; set aside.

Grill chicken breasts over medium heat 2 – 3 minutes each side or until lightly browned and cooked through. Transfer chicken to platter, brush with thickened pan juices and serve.
