Honey Mustard Chicken with Jalapenos

Marinade

1/3 cup chopped mint (can use dried)
¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup lemon juice ( one lemon)
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper

Sauce

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 cup finely chopped onion (red)
1 teaspoon finely chopped Jalapeno pepper
¼ cup grainy mustard
2 tablespoons honey

Place rinsed chicken breasts ( 4-5) or 2 chicken halves in a sealed baggie with the marinade for at least an hour (more time is better)
Combine sauce ingredients in a medium sauce pan at medium heat until boil and reduce to a simmer for a few minutes
Whisk and remove from heat for later (OPTIONAL: reserve a tablespoon or so to mix into the rice)
Grill chicken at medium heat 350 until juices run clear (internal temp 175 ish) turning once after 4-7 minutes
For the last few minutes of cooking baste the top of the chicken with the sauce…..do not turn again as it WILL burn!!
Internal temp should be 180-185 and tender and delicious…..enjoy with Brown Rice. I reserve a little sauce in advance and mix with the rice!!
