This simple recipe for barbequed mustard chicken is quick and easy to make and works perfectly on the barbeque. We cooked this recipe after being given a rather large jar of hot Dijon mustard from a French neighbour in Orce village. The chicken pieces are marinated in the mustard for a few hours before being thrown straight onto the grill, the end result is an almost nutty flavour from the mustard together with the smoky flavours of barbequed chicken pieces.
1.Place the chicken pieces into a terracotta cazuela, cut the breasts in half if they are large. Skin can be left on.
2.Spoon over the mustard then mix well ensuring all the chicken is covered.
3.Cover and marinade in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
4.Grill the chicken over the barbeque for 10 minutes each side or until cooked.
5.Serve with mixed salad or boiled potatoes.

For some time, I backed away from quinoa a bit. It became so popular that it was everywhere (and still is to a certain extent). I moved on from quinoa and dove into all the other grains. And yet, it still remains one of my favorite grains (especially now that it’s being successfully grown in [...]
I have a problem at farmers’ markets: I can never leave without beets. I think that every variety is gorgeous and I’ll always find a use for them (both the greens and roots). This is my seasonal, forward-thinking salad. The dill and lemon brighten the salad to make it feel more like a spring dish. [...]
During the later winter months, I start moving away from heavy meals. I crave simple, fresh meals. This einkorn salad has been a favorite of mine for years. I love the warmth of the einkorn paired with the Brussels. You could easily leave the Brussels raw and do more of a slaw- also delicious! I [...]
Imagine if you will, traveling 4 hours to stay the weekend with 2 people (and a dog) you had never met. This is exactly how my first time went meeting Alex and Sonja from A Couple Cooks in early 2012. Back when I lived in Illinois, it was only a four hour drive over to [...]
