Chicken Dijon Marinade

Now that the weather is warming up, here’s a lovely and quick marinade that’s great on barbecued chicken. This is a quick go-to dinner after work that I usually serve with a salad and rice.


  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1lb chicken (breasts or thighs)


Mix all ingredients together.

Marinate your chicken. I usually marinate the chicken breasts or thighs for 1-2 hours but even if you only have ½ an hour to marinate your chicken, you’ll still have lots of flavour.

Grill on med-high heat for about 20 minutes (turning once) or until no trace of pink remains.  Enjoy!
