Grilled Lemon Mustard Chicken

© "From Ellie's Kitchen to Yours"
2 lbs boneless chicken breasts, halved
1/4 C fresh herbs such as basil, parsley,
  oregano or rosemary, chopped
1/4 C Dijon mustard
1/2 C fresh lemon juice
Rind of one lemon, chopped
1/4 tsp black pepper

In a small bowl combine all ingredients, except chicken, to make the marinade. Place chicken in a nonaluminum pan and pour marinade over it. Marinate for 2 to 4 hours in the refrigerator. Grease grids of grill with oil or spray with nonstick spray. Grill chicken for 6 to 9 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Check carefully for doneness so that the chicken will not get overcooked and dry.

Hint: This is a wonderful fat free marinade that has an intense lemon flavor. If not overcooked, it tastes very moist and juicy.
