Lemon Dijon Chicken, Diabetes Friendly-George Foreman Grill

This Lemon Dijon Chicken has a lot of big flavor for such a quick soak in the marinade! I loved the tangy lemon and dill is always a winner here. This cooks up very quickly and would be great for dinner or a perky addition to a winter salad. Don't hesitate to give the recipe a try folks, and if you don't have a grill they can be made under the broiler.

The recipe called for skewering the meat and just brushing it with the sauce. (Honestly, no skewering is necessary if using an indoor grill.)
I chose to cut the breasts about 1/4" thick and soak the meat in the marinade while the grill heated up. Then I skewered the meat and gave it one final brushing of marinade before placing on the grill.
These were cooked on a George Foreman Grill, I took them off the skewers for pics...
and to nibble on, I was hungry:@)
