We Love Our Chicken

Chicken is so versatile. We put it in salads, soups, casseroles, pasta dishes, and serve it as a stand-alone main dish.

Chicken is historically the most beloved form of protein in the United States, according to sales records from grocery chains and restaurants. It ranks significantly higher than beef, pork, seafood, or other forms of poultry here in the USA.

There are uncountable ways to prepare chicken… So many ways, in fact, that we are closing in on 200 chicken recipes here on A Spicy Perspective.

Chicken Provides:

  • Heart-healthy lean protein
  • Vitamin B6 to boost your metabolism
  • Vitamins B2 to help with cell regeneration
  • Phosphorus to keep your teeth and bones strong
  • And it acts as a natural anti-depressant, by boosting your serotonin levels.

No wonder we can’t get enough of it.

Grilled Chicken Breast Recipe

I love these easy 4-ingredient chicken breasts so much. The seasoning mixture locks in the flavor and juices so they are zesty and tender every time.

This method makes a fabulous grilled chicken recipe. However, you can also bake them in the oven.

Although they don’t get the same charred quality, the seasoning sticks to the chicken a little better in the oven, so they are packed with flavor!

4-Ingredient Magic Grilled Chicken Breasts Ingredient Checklist

These zesty chicken breasts are so tender and flavorful, they are wonderful as a main dish. Yet they are just as fabulous to make-ahead, and chop up for salads, soups, tacos, and wraps.

The 4 Required Ingredients Include:

  • Chicken Breasts. (boneless and skinless)
  • Mayonnaise. To act as the base of the glaze. You can use standard mayo, or find gluten free and paleo brands.
  • Spicy Whole Grain Mustard. The chunky kind, yet with a creamy base texture. (See the image above.)
  • Smoked paprika. To add that little extra smoky something.

P.S. You will probably also want to add some salt and pepper.

How To Make Perfect Grilled Chicken Breasts

  1. Simply mix the mayonnaise, mustard, and paprika.
  2. Brush it over the chicken.

That’s it! You’ll be amazed at how this power-packed seasoning glaze flavors and tenderizes the chicken breasts.
