I found this recipe on the website Cook Eat Share and almost passed it over because it sounded pretty ordinary - but the Dijon mustard in the ingredients list got me curious. I truly enjoyed this chicken! I hope some of you do, too.

Directions

  1. Season the chicken on both sides with the salt and pepper. Place in a ziplock bag with 1 Tbsp hoisin, 1 Tbsp vinegar, and 1 tsp soy sauce. Rub to distribute the ingredients and marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove from fridge and let sit for 20 minutes before grilling.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the sauce ingredients with a whisk or fork until smooth.
  3. Clean the grill and preheat to medium high indirect, or medium direct. Grill the chicken skin side down with the lid closed as much as possible for about 10 minutes Then turn and cook skin side up for about 10 minutes, still with lid down as much as possible. Brush both sides with sauce and move positions as needed to even out the cooking for about 5 minutes. If sauce remains, brush both sides again using all the sauce, turn over, and continue to cook for a final 5 minutes. Remove when chicken is golden brown and juices run clear.
