Serves 4

Honey-Mustard Grilled Chicken with Foil Packet Green Beans Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, divided
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs (4 pieces)
  • 12 ounces green beans, trimmed
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, as needed

Honey-Mustard Grilled Chicken with Foil Packet Green Beans Directions

  1. Prepare a grill or grill pan for medium heat. Whisk together the mustard, one tablespoon of lemon juice, honey, and garlic in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Pat the chicken thighs dry and season with salt. Brush on both sides with some of the honey mustard.
  3. Arrange the chicken thighs skin side down on the grill and cook, undisturbed, until the skin is deeply browned. Flip and continue to cook, occasionally turning and basting with more honey mustard until the internal temperature reaches 165°F on a meat thermometer. Transfer to a plate to rest while you cook the green beans.
  4. In a large bowl, toss the green beans with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, pepper, and the remaining tablespoon of lemon juice. Divide evenly among four large squares of aluminum foil, then seal into packets. Place on the grill and cook until the green beans are crisp-tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Serve with the chicken thighs.
