Honey-Rosemary Chicken

"A great grilled chicken recipe! Wonderful mix of honey and mustard. Taken from BHG the Biggest Book of Grilling. I used a bit less olive oil and more lemon juice than the recipe asked for."

    Wonderful flavor w/just the perfect amount of sweetness and just the right amount of rosemary. I ended up baking mine in the oven as the weather turned cold and windy. <br/>Made for Cooking with Herbs and Spices - September - Rosemary...in KK's forum.

    This was great and easy to prepare. I used dried rosemary since I didn't have fresh. I grilled it on the stove top and followed puppitypup's lead and made up another batch of the marinade (added some chicken stock and cornstarch) and reduced it down to a sauce - delish!

    Excellent chicken - big on flavors and easy to prepare. I used only 2 chicken breasts, marinated for 4 hours and and cooked on an indoor contact grill. I got a little carried away with the rosemary-snipping and perhaps had a bit too much but that's easily corrected next time. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    Truly exceptional flavor and easy to make. This is what five stars should be. I sauteed the chicken on top of the stove, then added the leftover marinade and reduced it to a delicious sauce. I used 2 large chicken breasts, cut into smaller pieces, and cooked them for about 20 minutes total.
