Grilled Chicken Breast With Tarragon-Lemon Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by breezermom

Skinless chicken breast marinated in mustard, then basted with a tarragon-lemon sauce while grilling. I use bone-in breasts, so reduce the cooking time if you use boneless breasts. Prep time does not include the 2 hour marinating time.

Quick, easy and delicious....even though I used the basting sauce as a finishing sauce instead. I used boneless chicken breasts, so the chicken didn't dry out on the grill. I will definitely make this again!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Spread mustard on both sides of the chicken and sprinkle with the black pepper. Cover and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours.
  2. Prepare your grill for cooking the chicken over medium coals.
  3. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat; stir in the remaining ingredients. Cook, uncovered, over low heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the sauce from the heat.
  4. Baste the chicken with the sauce. Grill over medium coals for 50 to 55 minutes or until done (if your fire is too hot, it will dry out your chicken.) Turn and baste the chicken every 10 minutes with the remaining sauce.
