Savory Mustardy Chicken for Superbowl Sunday

My husband and I do not really follow football but we always enjoy watching the big game. It doesn't matter which playoff team's side we're on (although we usually root for the underdog) but we always hope for a good game regardless of who wins.

A good game goes hand in hand with good food, right? This savory mustardy chicken recipe is one of the things I like to make. But since I was missing some additional ingredients, I needed to go to the grocery store. I LOVE that the market is just 2 miles roundtrip and an easy ride on this gorgeous, sunny Saturday!

Savory Mustard Chicken Recipe

Marinade is enough for about 20 pieces of chicken depending on the size so double or triple the recipe if you have more chicken.

Mix together garlic, honey, mustard, soy sauce, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper for marinade. Pour marinade over chicken in a non-reactive bowl or leak proof plastic bag. Refrigerate at least an hour or up to 24 hours before grilling or broiling.
