- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

aluminum foil pan. Pour marinade over chicken. Sprinkle
hickory chips over hot coals. Place pan with chicken on

Personal Notes:
By cooking the chicken in a pan instead of
directly on the grill grate, the meat gets extra
protection from drying out.If using a gas grill,
opt for this method instead of process described
in Step 2 of recipe directions: Soak wood chips
in water 30 minutes. Light 1 side of grill, heating
to 400 to 500 (high heat). Leave other side unlit.
Drain wood chips. Places soaked and drained
chips in center of 12-inch square piece of
heavy-duty aluminum foil, and wrap tightly to
form a packet. Pierce several holes in top of packet;
place directly on lit side of grill.
