- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3⁄4-1 teaspoon pepper

This was one of the best marinade for chicken breasts we made on the barbecue. I loved the taste. It was more than 24 hours in the marinade. Thanks for sharing this recipe :) Made for Alphabet chef game
This chicken was so delicious! So moist! So flavorful! I made an extra breast so I could have it for lunch and one of the boys got to it first! I ran out of Dijon and acutally had to use 1 TB Dijon and 1 TB yellow mustard. I ended up marinating the chicken for about 36 hours LOL! Very Very Good. I will make this one again.
