Amys Grilled Chicken Breasts

Recipe from: Lean Italian Cooking by Anne Casale

4 chicken breast halves, without skin
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
3 ½ tablespoon white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
2 teaspoons honey
1 tablespoon fresh thyme, dried, minced
⅓ teaspoon coarse salt
1 ⅓ dashes red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 sprigs fresh thyme

Place the chicken breasts within a folded piece of plastic wrap and slightly flatten upper portion of each breast with the broad side of a chef's knife to promote even grilling. Place breasts in a shallow glass or ceramic dish. Place mustard, vinegar, garlic, honey, thyme, salt and pepper flakes in a small bowl, then stir with fork to combine. Add oil a little at a time and whisk to combine marinade. Pour marinade over breasts. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator, turning once or twice in marinade, for at least 2 hours, or up to 4 hours. Remove breasts from marinade, scraping any bits clinging to chicken back into the shallow dish. Transfer all marinade to small saucepan and bring to a boil and reserve. Lightly grease grill rack with cooking spray. Preheat grill. Place breasts on grill. Cook covered with lid, basting frequently with marinade, until tender, approximately 5 to 6 minutes on each side.
