BackstoryIf you ever needed an excuse to open a bottle of "buttery" Chardonnay, this is it. Mustard Chicken is a simple dish to do on a weeknight. Try to marinate for a while to let the mustard get into the chicken.
After marinating, you can cook this dish on the grill, in a pan or in the oven. Play with it to find the method that works best for you.
Buttery Chardonnay tends to have oakiness that gives the wine faint creme brûlée notes. The brown sugar in the marinade will marry up nicely.
