  • Grill


  • 2 pounds chicken
  • 1/4 cup Mayo
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 3 tablespoons Rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic powder


  • In a mixing bowl, add mayo, honey, mustard, rice wine vinegar, parsley and thyme. Stir really well and set aside.
  • Place chicken on parchment paper. Add salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder to the chicken.
  • Place chicken in a zip log bag or bowl and pour marinade down on top of the chicken. Make sure all the chicken is covered in the marinade.
  • Place in the fridge for 4-6 hours if you can. Let that chicken marinate as long as possible.
  • Remove chicken from the fridge and preheat your grill to 350 degrees. Place chicken on the grill and cook 7 minutes. Flip the chicken and grill for an additional 7 minutes.
  • Remove the grill and serve.


  • Do not forget to season your chicken. You need to season every "layer" of cooking!
  • We are a dip sauce kind of family! I reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade (before I pour it over the chicken) and add it to our favorite ranch dressing or sour cream. I mix it all together and drizzle over the top of the chicken.
  • This dipping sauce is also perfect to drizzle on top of grilled veggies. Check out "What to serve with grilled chicken" section for directions.
  • Forgot to reserve some of the marinade? No problem, take 1 tablespoon honey and 1 tablespoon of yellow mustard and mix with about a 1/4 cup sour cream or favorite ranch dressing. You will have about the same taste.
  • Remember, if you are using thick pieces of chicken breasts or thighs, use your meat thermometer to double check that internal temp. Chicken needs to be at 165 degrees.
