Grilled Chicken Marinated in Mustard & Herbs

Tender grilled chicken gets a flavor boost from Italian seasonings, garlic, and dijon mustard. Serve over leafy greens, tossed with a flavorful pasta salad recipe, or as a main dish with grilled vegetables. 

Serving Size: 4


  • 6 pcs of chicken - drumsticks and thighs suggested 
  • 1 1/2 cups of loosely packed herbs - i.e. parsley, basil, rosemary, thyme
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 Tbsp good dijon mustard
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper


Place herbs, garlic, and zest from 1 lemon, salt & pepper into a food processor. Process to a fine chop and then add juice from lemon, dijon mustard, and olive oil until consistency is a thick paste.

Rub mixture all over chicken and let sit. The longer it sits the better!

Place chicken on grill and serve once cooked!

Grilled Sicilian Sirloin Steak

Take a trip to the isle of Sicily, where flavors are bold and recipes are made with love. This grilled steak recipe mixes classic Sicilian flavors such as red wine vinegar, oregano, basil, and garlic to create a delicious, savory marinade. Serve the grilled steaks with roasted eggplant, another Sicilian favorite.

Serving Size: 6-8



Mix olive oil, vinegar, garlic, basil, & pepper together in a bowl. Cover sirloin steaks evenly on all sides and let marinade in the refrigerator for 12 hours. Remove steaks from fridge at least 15 minutes before grilling.

Mix breadcrumbs, cheese, and oregano. Dredge steaks in mixture, coating steaks thoroughly. Salt steak to taste.   

Place steaks on grill and cook to desired wellness!

Prosciutto Wrapped Chicken Stuffed with Fontina Cheese

This grilled chicken recipe has literal layers of delectable flavor: fontina cheese is stuffed inside a chicken breast, which is then wrapped in salty prosciutto, before being roasted on a charcoal grill. Serve this crispy, melty, grilled chicken with grilled asparagus and classic Italian side dishes such as olives and caprese salad. 

Serving Size: 4


  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1/4 lb (4oz) of fontina cheese, sliced into 8 even pieces
  • 4 slices of prosciutto
  • Basil leaves
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste


Using a sharp knife, cut each chicken horizontally through the side being careful not to cut all the way through. Incision should be like creating a pocket or opening a book. 

Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper all over including the inside pocket. Then place 2 slices of fontina and basil inside the pocket and fold closed. 

Wrap a slice of prosciutto and the entire breast and brush each side lightly with olive oil.

Place chicken on grill and serve when cook entirely through!
