I’ve been slowly working my way through my mom’s recipe binder and I stumbled upon this recipe card for Grilled Brown Sugar Mustard Chicken. Even though it was just called “Marinated Chicken,” I knew which recipe it was. It was one of my favorites when I was a kid!  The recipe card was filled out by one of her friends – Marjorie Mitchell?  I wish I could ask her about it!  I am not sure I know who that is.

Mom made this chicken mostly when we had company over because it’s a REAL crowd pleaser. She would easily double it and triple it if need be. She served it with coleslaw and her potato salad (which I don’t have the recipe for!).  The chicken is so simple to put together and FILLED with flavor. There’s something about the citrus, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar and grainy mustard that makes it superb. It’s sweet and tangy and I’m sure you’ll want to go back for seconds.

I had my Dad over for dinner a few weeks ago and served it with my garlic bread and a potato salad with a bunch of arugula tossed in.

The only thing I’d alter is making sure I reserve a little of the marinade to pour over the chicken when it’s done. I think that’s what my Mom did since I knew how obsessed she was about meat and cross contamination.  The marinade is so good. I love it so much! I want to drink it.

A definite keeper in the meal prep rotation! THANKS, MOM!

    I love these marinated chicken recipes. I have one that I use regularly and I hope my kids have such fond memories of it as you did of your mom’s recipe.

    I can tell this is going to be a favourite with my chicken-loving husband. Such a simple way to spruce up some plain chicken breasts – and once the marinade and salad are done I can kick my feet up while he grills!

    Made this tonight with bone-in chicken thighs (I was in the mood). Delicious! Mimicked what you’re eating with it – some par boiled potatoes finished in a pan of ghee tossed with lemon and arugula. Yum!

  • Kristin

    We made this last night with a combo of breasts and thighs, and I am throwing out my old chicken marinade. This had so much more flavor! Thanks so much for sharing it.

  • Kathy Stahl

    This looks great! Just, wondering is that skin on or off ?

  • Leah

    Looks amazing! My chicken is marinating right now for dinner tonight, can’t wait to try this. Have you ever only marinated the chicken for a few hours? Please share that potato, arugula and parsley side dish….it’s look equally as delish!

  • Marissa

    Made this tonight and the whole family loved it! The kids were sad that there wasn’t any leftover for school lunches.
