  • 1 tablespoon mustard, dijon
  • 1/2 medium lemon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground


  • 8 ounce asparagus


  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice (about 1/4 cup), lemon zest, salt and pepper.
  • Place chicken in the bowl and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  • To make the dipping sauce, in a medium bowl, whisk together yogurt, garlic, Dijon mustard, lemon juice and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Prepare grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat.
  • Brush and oil the grill grate.
  • Place the chicken on the grill directly over the fire and cook until the juices run clear and the chicken is cooked through, about 5 to 8 minutes on each side.
  • Serve grilled chicken with lemon yogurt dipping sauce and your favorite side dish (I love citrus grilled or roasted asparagus).
