This grilled chicken is a real crowd-pleaser. One bite of the tender, juicy meat marinated in lemon and harissa Dijon for a flavor punch and guests will be asking for the secret.

Grilled chicken is one of Keith’s favorite things to make. In fact, Keith thoroughly enjoys grilling in general. He loves to develop interesting marinades and rubs that bring out the natural flavors in meats and fish, and believe me, he is really good at it. Our friends at Maille sent us some delectable samplings of their world-famous mustards recently, and Keith chose their Lemon and Harissa blend as the key ingredient for this incredible citrus dijon marinade. This mustard is unlike anything we have ever tasted; its unique, robust flavor make it an ideal pairing for poultry. Grilled chicken has never tasted so good.
Keith believes in using bone-in leg quarters for grilling. He has explained to me on many occasions how bone-in chicken is much more flavorful when grilled, and I have learned not to question him. One bite of this tender, juicy chicken can convert any cynic. The lemon and harissa Dijon marinade packs a real punch; the exotic flavor of harissa with the cool taste of citrus was so delicious that I even snuck some of it onto my mixed greens as a dressing. Be sure to let this flavorful marinade “do its thing” by refrigerating the chicken for at least six hours (or ideally overnight). We guarantee you won’t regret it.
This grilled chicken is quite the crowd-pleaser. It passes the kid test, and it has that extra something that discerning adults will take notice of. What a way to kick of summer grilling season!
