Get dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes with grilled chicken topped with a creamy dijon sauce flavored with parsley, capers, and scallions. Dijon mustard makes an excellent ingredient for healthy recipes because it has a gentler acidity that brings big flavor. Parsley's not just for garnishes. It's also a great way to add flavor without adding any calories or fat contained in so many other sauces. When selecting parsley, look for parsley that's deep green in color. Make sure that the leaves aren't wilted.


Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

1 pound(s)

Table salt

¼ tsp

Black pepper

¼ tsp

Olive oil cooking spray

1 spray(s)

Uncooked scallion(s)

2 medium

Fresh parsley

½ cup(s), packed



Rice vinegar

3 Tbsp

Olive oil

1 tsp

1 tsp


2 Tbsp, drained


  1. Preheat grill. Season chicken with salt and pepper; coat lightly with olive oil cooking spray. Grill over medium-hot coals until cooked through, about 6 minutes per side.
  2. While chicken is cooking, prepare sauce. Chop scallions, separating white and green parts. In a food processor or blender, combine white part of scallions, parsley, water, rice vinegar, oil and mustard. Process or blend until a chunky purée forms. Transfer to a spouted container; stir in capers and green parts of scallions.
  3. Thinly slice chicken diagonally across the grain and fan on a serving platter covered with lettuce. Drizzle with sauce and serve.
