Recommended Specialty Mustard: Sierra Nevada Porter & Spicy Brown Mustard, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Chico, California USA
Porter & Spicy Brown Mustard – Deep Yellow Ochre – Blends of deep-roasted barley malts with hints of caramel produce a complex, rich and smooth elegance within a savory tang.
2 chickens or 3 chicken breasts, cut in halves or quarters
¾ C. lemon juice
¾ C. orange juice
1/3 C. orange blossom honey
¾ C. olive oil
2 tablespoons Sierra Nevada Porter & Spicy Brown Mustard
½ teaspoon thyme
½ teaspoon sage
Orange slices and parsley, for garnish.
Remove skin from chicken, if desired. Place chicken pieces in plastic bag.
Prepare marinade: Mix together lemon juice, orange juice, honey, oil, Sierra Nevada Porter & Spicy Brown Mustard thyme and sage until thoroughly blended. Pour into plastic bag with chicken. Cut orange in half-inch wedges and add to marinade/chicken. Tightly close bag, and gently turn to coat chicken.
Marinate in refrigerator 2-6 hours, turning several times to evenly coat chicken with seasoned blend.
To grill, remove chicken from marinating bag. Reserve marinade in basting bowl. Place chicken, skin side up, 6-8 inches over a hot bed of charcoal and hickory chips. Brush occasionally with reserved marinade. Grill 20-25 minutes, on each side or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
