Recipe Ingredients:

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Grated peel of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
6 bone-in chicken breast halves with skin
Juice of 1 lemon
1/3 cup dry white wine

Cooking Directions:

  1. In small bowl, combine mayonnaise and mustard, mixing well.
