This was super easy, healthy, and quick!  I think the robust flavors even satisfied Corrie who’s usually not overly excited about plain grilled chicken.

Barbecue Chicken with Mustard Glaze

  • 2  Tbsp. dark brown sugar
  • 2  tsp. garlic powder
  • 2  tsp. chili powder
  • 1  tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/2  tsp. salt
  • 1/4  cup  ketchup
  • 1  Tbsp. dark brown sugar
  • 1  Tbsp. sherry or red wine vinegar
  • 1  Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Cooking spray or olive oil

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl.  In a separate small bowl, combine ketchup and next 3 ingredients (through mustard); stir with a whisk.

Heat a large grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat your outdoor grill. Rub spice mixture evenly over the chicken. Coat pan with cooking spray.  If using an outdoor grill, CAREFULLY put a little bit of olive oil on the grates so it doesn’t stick.  Do it lightly with a long-handled brush to avoid flare-ups.   Add chicken to pan; cook 12 minutes. Turn chicken over. Brush with half of ketchup mixture; cook 12 minutes. Turn chicken over. Brush with remaining ketchup mixture; cook 2 minutes or until a thermometer registers 165°.
