Featured Recipe: Zesty grilled chicken with thyme
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half
- 2 teaspoons Dijon-type mustard
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 2 sprigs fresh thyme (about 1/4 teaspoon)
- 1 teaspoon horseradish (optional)
Combine all the ingredients except chicken in a bowl or container large enough to accommodate the chicken breasts. Coat the chicken breasts with the mixture and let stand at least 15 minutes. Grill (or broil) about 5 minutes per side, or until chicken is cooked through (internal temperature of 165°F). Try substituting fresh oregano for the thyme. Or, if you like a bit of crust, roll in unseasoned, gluten-free bread crumbs before grilling. Or sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
