Grilled chicken topped with a lemon balsamic sauce.

LEMON addict warning!  I have a problem.  I grilled some chicken and thought a nice light, bright lemony sauce would be lovely paired with my pistachio-mint tabbouleh salad.  Summer bright flavors!

I grilled some breasts of chicken (seasoned only with salt and pepper). Grilled until thoroughly cooked.  Set aside to rest for 6-8 minutes.  Then get started on the super easy sauce.


3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice (fresh is best)
1 tablespoon of a better quality balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon of a good dijon mustard (I used Maille)
Zest of half lemon
Pinch salt


Whisk all of the ingredients together.  Top your chicken, vegetables, fish or whatever you like and enjoy!!
