Charbroiling refers to grilling food to the point where it has a slightly charred flavor and texture. Meat, such as chicken, is most commonly charbroiled. You must first marinate the meat in a flavorful mixture to imbue it with a tangy taste that will not cook away when you grill it. Charbroiling chicken requires approximately 1 hour of marinating time and 30 minutes for grilling.
Things You'll Need
- 3 tbsp. Dijon mustard
- 1 cup Italian dressing
- 1 cup finely chopped white onion
- 1 tsp. tarragon
- 1/2 cup apple juice
- Medium bowl
- Four chicken breasts, thawed
- Plastic wrap
Combine the Dijon mustard, Italian dressing, onion, tarragon and apple juice in a medium bowl. Stir to blend and place chicken breasts into the bowl to marinate.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. Preheat a grill to high heat.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and place onto the preheated grill. Baste with half of the marinade and leave to grill for 15 to 20 minutes. Flip the chicken and baste with the remaining marinade.
Continue to grill for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until the chicken’s juices run clear. Allow the chicken to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
